,' said there is more than 141 gigawatts of offshore wind energy capacity already built, under construction, consented or planned in 17 EU member states. That number would represent 35 times more capacity than the 4 gigawatts currently installed, and it could provide more than 13 percent of Europe’s electricity production. The study went on to say that 169,000 jobs could be created in the EU offshore winds sector by 2020, and up to 300,000 by 2030. European countries currently have cornered the offshore market, with 99 percent of installed capacity and 5.6 GW currently under construction in the UK, Germany and Belgium.
