Take a look back through some of our Boundary Pushers series highlights from the past eight months. Hear from industry experts including Giles Dickson, Emma Pinchbeck, Jens Tommerup and Keith Anderson.
In the final instalment of Boundary Pushers, Windpower Monthly takes a look at the role technology will play in the future of offshore wind.
A positive consequence of fightback against carbon emissions has been the growth in clean technology. It is set to transform how we live. The CEO of MHI Vestas, Jens Tommerup, discusses the future of offshore wind.
WORLDWIDE: Until recently, offshore wind power was one of the most costly forms of power generation.
In this installation of the Boundary Pushers series we speak to industry experts about offshore grid challenges.
Offshore wind has made great strides in recent years. Projects announced in Europe in 2017 have achieved record-low prices, well under €100/MWh.
The more competitively priced offshore wind becomes, the greater the chance of unlocking demand and new markets - and, with that, opportunities in the offshore wind supply chain increase.
The more competitively priced offshore wind becomes, the greater the chance of unlocking demand and new markets - and, with that, opportunities in the offshore wind supply chain increase. Reducing capital and operational costs in offshore wind boils down to technological innovation in three core areas: turbines, operations and maintenance (O&M) and the grid.
Cutting costs continues to be at the heart of what the offshore wind industry is looking to achieve. In this installation of the Boundary Pushers series we have been talking to some of the biggest players about what their companies are doing to lower the cost of energy and the obstacles to offshore wind growth.
In this nine-part series, Windpower Monthly and MHI Vestas explore how the industry is driving down the cost of offshore wind energy through competition, collaboration and innovation.
