World Forum Offshore Wind (WFO) has published its updated global offshore wind figures. Globally 4,988MW of offshore wind capacity have been installed during 2018. In total, global offshore wind installations have reached 22,045MW by the end of 2018.
WFO provides unlimited access to its database which is published at WFO’s website. A detailed data set of all individual offshore wind farms installed worldwide has been stored in the database.
Furthermore, WFO’s members have signed the WFO Mission ‘500 by 50’. WFO wants to pave the way to utilise the industry’s potential to build additional 500GW of offshore wind capacity by the year 2050. This mission is based on the latest projection by the International Renewable Energy Agency’s (IRENA) transformation roadmap which states that the industry has the potential to reach 520GW of installed offshore wind capacity by the year 2050.
