Why the offshore wind power experiment is a success
As the world seeks ever cleaner ways to generate power, offshore wind is a growing presence in today’s changing energy landscape. In a short timeframe wind power has become a leading source of renewable energy, and its presence is growing.
The size of turbines is increasing as the cost of operating offshore farms falls, making it an attractive proposition for new investors. Initially driven by Europe, offshore wind is now a global industry with new markets in North America and Asia rapidly embracing the winds of change.
Watch how an industry which was developed with the support of heavy government subsidies is now learning to stand on its own. Today’s offshore wind farms create enough generating capacity to rival traditional power plants, which is catching the attention of policymakers around the globe.
