WindEurope June Report: Unleashing Europe’s offshore wind potential

Discussion created by Robert Pleticha Partner on 12-Jun-2017

Despite Trump backing out of the Paris Climate Agreements, it is reassuring to see the EU continue to progress towards reducing carbon emissions. This report from WindEurope is worth a read. Any insights from this report that you can share with us?

 

Some things I learned:

  • 12.6 GW of offshore wind is currently operating in Europe
  • Offshore wind is expected to produce 7% to 11% of the EU’s electricity demand by 2030
  • 25% of the EU’s electricity demand could, in theory, be met by offshore wind energy at an average of €54/MWh in the most favourable locations
