Record-breaking year for European offshore wind

Europe’s offshore wind industry is set for a record 12 months, according to new analysis from the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA).

As several projects reached completion and larger, more powerful turbines were deployed, 2.3GW of capacity was added to the European electricity grid.

Fifteen wind farms were installed and connected to the grid in waters off the UK, the Netherlands and Germany and, resulting in more installed capacity than in any other year.
