Europe installed and grid connected 293 offshore wind turbines in 2012. This brings the total to 1,662 turbines, in 61 offshore wind farms in ten European countries.

The 293 turbines installed in 2012 represent 1,165MW, an increase of 33% compared to 2011 installations of 874MW. This brings total offshore wind energy capacity to 4,995MW. Overall, the UK remains the leader with nearly 60% of Europe's total offshore capacity, followed by Denmark (18%), Belgium (8%) and Germany (6%). The turbines installed in 2012 represent investments of around € 4 billion in offshore wind farms. Offshore prospects for 2013 and 2014 are positive with 14 offshore projects under construction, due to increase installed capacity by a further 3,300MW, and bring total offshore capacity in Europe to 8,300MW.
