The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) released the third edition of its annual flagship Global Offshore Wind Report, which finds that offshore wind capacity grew steadily in 2020, with 6.1 GW installed globally, but governments will need to act decisively to improve policy in order to scale up installations at the pace required to help the world meet its carbon emissions targets and avoid the worst effects of global heating.
The report highlights offshore wind’s role in the decades ahead as one of the central planks of the world’s future energy system on the road to net zero, the latest technology innovations to open new opportunities for the sector, and how the offshore wind industry is powering a green recovery and just transition.
Key highlights from the Report:
Principle Power is a proud Supporting Sponsor of GWEC's Global Offshore Wind Report 2021 and contributed with a case study on "Industrialising floating offshore wind".
