Global potential for offshore wind

In February, Wood Mackenzie sent out a press release stating that the global offshore wind demand will increase nearly six fold over the next ten years. With such huge global potential, We spoke to newly founded World Forum on their outlook.

By the end of 2017, offshore wind had only been deployed commercially across seven markets, with UK and Germany accounting for 68% of the grid-connected capacity. Wood Mackenzie’s press release showed. 101 gigawatts of offshore wind capacity will be installed across 18 different countries between 2018 and 2027, representing a nearly six-fold increase.

“Yes”, agrees Gunner Herzig, managing director of WFO. “The time is the right for offshore wind globally and everyone around the world acknowledges this fact. Given the developments, we have seen and if you look at where we are today. I don’t think anyone expected this manner of growth and it is really amazing what has happened globally.”
