About the Webcast
Global offshore wind capacity will surge to over 234 GW by 2030 from 29.1 GW at the end of 2019, led by exponential growth in the Asia-Pacific region and continued strong growth in Europe, according to a new report from the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC).
GWEC’s Global Offshore Wind Report highlights that offshore wind is truly going global, with rapid growth in new markets and new technology innovations such as floating offshore wind, megaturbines and Power-to-X opening new opportunities for the industry and to reach the world’s decarbonisation goals. Governments are also quickly realising the role that offshore wind technology can play in kick-starting green recovery as the industry has demonstrated its resilience throughout the COVID-19 crisis.
