Offshore Wind Prices: Will Key Learnings Help US Projects?

In contrast, Bloomberg noted the U.K. will pay £92.50 ($125.09) per MWh for electricity from the Hinkley Point atomic plant. The Danish utility DONG Energy A/S was one of the low-bid companies in that recent auction which, for DONG, secured power from its “Hornsea Project Two (HP2),” 89 km (55 miles) off the Yorkshire coast, in the North Sea. HP1 is under construction , and HP3 is being developed. At 1,386 MW, HP2 will become the world’s biggest wind farm when operational, likely in 2022. A 50 percent drop in the cost of any commodity attracts attention, and questions. Does the Hornsea project represent a kind of tipping-point, an indicator that offshore wind pro...
