132 new offshore wind turbines, totalling 523.2 MW were fully grid connected in Europe in the first six months of 2012. This is a 50% increase compared to the same period in 2011 when 348.1MW were installed.

2012 could turn out to be the best year ever for offshore wind energy in Europe, as a further 160 turbines, totalling 647.4MW, are built but awaiting grid connection. This is subject to weather conditions at sea and grid connection delays. A total of 4,336MW offshore wind capacity was operating as of 30 June 2012 - up from 3,294MW in June 2011. During the first half of 2012 overall, 13 wind farms were under construction. Once completed these wind farms will account for an additional capacity of 3,762MW.
