EU Installed More Than One Offshore Wind Turbine Per Working Day In 2012

More than one offshore wind turbine was installed per working day in European waters in 2012, bringing the total to 1,662 in 55 offshore wind farms spanning territorial waters of ten European countries, according to year-end data compiled and presented in a European Wind Energy Association report released January 28. Installation of 293 offshore wind turbines with a total rated capacity of 1,165 megawatts (MW) represents a 33% increase from 2011, when offshore wind turbines with a total rated capacity of 874 MW were installed. The rapid rate of installations still wasn’t fast enough to meet the European Union’s (EU) offshore wind power capacity target of 5,829 MW, however. Grid interconnection is holding back progress, with new additions in France and Germany lagging significantly behind target. Uncertainty in EU renewable energy policy, market reforms, and regulations are...
