Fig 1 FugroHow the Wind Industry Can Accelerate Construction and Deployment
As demand for carbon-neutral energy production increases around the world, wind generation has gone from strength to strength. Global power output by these means grew by a record 273 TWh in 2021, according to an IEA report (1) – 55 % higher growth than was achieved in 2020. Much of this capacity was driven by new onshore capacity, which is now present in 115 countries around the world. But offshore, the picture is very different. Just 19 countries currently have these kinds of deployments showing the progress we still need to make.
