The report, Europe’s Onshore and Offshore Wind Energy Potential – An Assessment of Environmental and Economic Constraints , looks at the raw wind resource potential, environmental and social constraints (such as noise, visual impact and bird and bat deaths), and the future cost of wind energy production. According to the EEA , “this study confirms that wind energy can play a major role in achieving the European renewable energy targets.” Wind turbine technology projections suggest that the wind energy potential may be equivalent to almost 20 times energy demand in 2020, with the biggest onshore wind potentials in North-Western Europe and the greatest offshore wind potential in the North Sea, Baltic Sea and the Atlantic Ocean with some potential in the Mediterranean and Black Sea. For onshore wind energy, environmental constraints were found to have little impact on potenti...
