Nearshore projects installation has gained substantial penetration over the past decade. Their ability to deliver a competitive energy transition with higher CUF has raised the adoption of fixed foundation offshore wind turbine across the globe. As of now, the average water depth for the deployment of fixed turbines is between 0-60 meters. Usually, the projects constructed across such depth offer significant potential for reliable grid connectivity. Further they are also considered to be more economical when compared with other available alternatives.

Implementation of favorable norms to boost the European market size for offshore wind turbines

Countries across the Europe have emerged as a flourishing and competitive market for the offshore wind turbine industry over the past decades. Denmark which was the first country to install a 5 MW offshore wind turbine in 1991 and now it has tripled its offshore wind capacity since 2008. The UK on the contrary considered as leading nation for the offshore wind turbine market having cumulative turbine installation of 9.9 GW in 2019 and its revenue is expected to witness growth of over 24% through  2026. The nation has deployed over 5 GW of offshore wind turbine in its renewable portfolio from 2015. The government of UK has developed Contracts for Difference to guarantee secure long-term returns from various electrical infrastructure projects. This in turn is minimizing the barriers to market entry for industry players.

The norms also lay requirement to develop viable return for stakeholders with promising funding via leveraging schemes. Focus on the development of large scale utility projects with ongoing investments towards identification of potential sites for various offshore projects will spur the industry growth. The market sentiment of the European Union toward the development of new offshore wind energy projects remains optimistic, thereby alluring prominent investments which will surge the installation of offshore wind turbines during the forecast timeline.
