Offshore Wind Power Market about to Boom (Report)

However, part of this is that we have been trying to essentially transplant turbines built for onshore wind offshore. A lot of work is going into creating wind turbines more appropriate to the need , though. For example, “[t]he Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) recently brought together E.ON (a major energy company in Europe), BP, power systems and engineering experts at Rolls-Royce, and the University of Strathclyde for a project called ‘Helm Wind.’ The project’s goal: create offshore wind turbines made for offshore wind, so that wind energy costs can be cut and electricity can be cheaper (and cleaner).” According to this group’s research, offshore wind energy costs could be cut
