The State of US Offshore Wind

Recent record offtake agreements and turbine orders in New Jersey and New York are critical steps towards expanding offshore wind in the North Eastern seaboard. US offshore wind has massive potential. The BOEM (Bureau Ocean Energy Management) has identified and leased 16 Offshore wind energy Areas for development along the East coast, representing 21 GW of potential power generation.

Los parques eólicos flotantes, un negocio rentable

La energía eólica favorece lograr ir más lejos en la costa, donde se producen vientos más rápidos y consistentes. Eso se traduce en una potencia exponencialmente mayor. Más del 80% del potencial eólico marino se encuentra en aguas a más de 60 metros, donde es económicamente menos atractivo construir directamente en el fondo marino. Las turbinas flotantes llenan ese vacío.

The World’s Largest Wind Farm, Hornsea One, is Now Online

The Hornsea One wind farm is located 75 miles off the UK coast, east of Grimsby. The asset is now partially operational with 50 of its 174 Siemens Gamesa 7MW turbines turning, enough to power 287,000 UK residencies. When completed in 2020, the 1,218MW project will be capable of supplying power to over a million homes during its 25-year lifespan,…

The Golden Age for Offshore Wind

A conversation with Tom Hopkinson, CEO. Wind energy, particularly offshore wind, has shown some incredible advances over the past few years. Subsidy-free offshore wind, enormous 8MW turbines, floating wind parks that open up deep-water installation sites, and grid-parity are making wind (along with solar) THE cheapest option across all energies, renewable or otherwise. So I sat down with our CEO, Tom Hopkinson,…
