How can this innovative and fast-growing technology help us achieve our climate change goals?
Floating offshore wind turbines could prove to be a significant asset in achieving climate targets. Not limited by water depth restrictions, this technology enhances the potential for a competitive and highly efficient supply of carbon-free electricity globally. Although the technology is still emerging, with only 200 MW of capacity installed globally to date and the first industrial scale project commissioned in 2017, it is expected to significantly take off in the next decade with imminent new projects in Europe, the USA, and Asia.
