Industry body forecasts eight-fold increase in global offshore wind capacity by 2030
The German government has funded a pilot project that will inform development of the country’s first offshore wind-to-green hydrogen project.
The Estonian and Latvian governments have agreed to jointly develop a 1GW wind farm in the Gulf of Riga that they claim could meet 40% of Estonia’s annual electricity consumption.
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) have formed a joint venture (JV) to develop offshore wind projects off the coast of Japan’s northernmost island of Hokkaido.
New European wind installations remained stable with previous years, but full-year additions are due to fall short of initial forecasts by about 20%, according to new analysis.
Oil giant Shell and Dutch energy company Eneco have won the tender to build the subsidy-free 759MW Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind farm.
ScottishPower Renewables has fully commissioned its 714MW East Anglia One project off the UK’s east coast, with about half of the turbine connection work completed since the UK went into lockdown because of the coronavirus pandemic.
German offshore wind production rose 17.9% in the first six months of the year, with generation increases recorded in both the North Sea and Baltic Sea.
The National Research Energy Laboratory's 15MW reference wind turbine aims to become an open-access benchmark for (academic) researchers and industry collaborators. Eize de Vries takes a closer look and talks to those involved.
After years of talk and planning, work begins in earnest at one of the world's highest-potential offshore wind markets
The current century has seen the wind industry move into the mainstream, becoming a legitimate source of electricity across the world. To celebrate Earth Day 2020, we want to show you how far the industry has come.
Netherlands-based Seawind Ocean Technologies has ambitious targets to install a 6.2MW floating two-bladed demonstrator in Scottish waters next year, followed by an enhanced 12.2MW prototype in 2022.
Pilot projects across Europe are looking at using renewable energy to push beyond generating electricity. Powering electrolysis to produce "green" hydrogen could help decarbonise transport and heating while using existing offshore infrastructure.
