According to 4C Offshore, the UK already has just over 7GW of operational offshore wind capacity, the largest amount of any country, and a further 7GW under construction or with contracts secured. The UK Government’s announcement of support for an additional 2GW of offshore wind per year in the 2020s could deliver up to 16GW of new capacity, which would generate approximately 20% of UK power.
Offshore wind is increasingly being developed further from shore, in deeper water and harsher conditions, posing logistical, safety and installation challenges for new sites under planning and development.
