With good onshore locations becoming hard to find,
Europe’s wind industry has its sights set offshore.
New Energy Finance estimates that Europe’s offshore wind plans will require at least EUR 90.8bn (USD 115bn) between now and 2030. Of this only EUR 2.7bn (USD 3.4bn) has so far been secured. A staggering EUR 88.7bn (USD 112bn) still remains to be found.
In this white paper New Energy Finance outlines what European governments need to put in place in order to streamline permitting processes and contribute to connection costs, if they want to hit their targets for offshore wind capacity.
