Global Floating Offshore Wind Markets, 2018-2028

/EIN News/ -- Dublin, June 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Floating Offshore Wind, 2018-2028" report has been added to's offering.

To date, the development of floating offshore wind has been largely limited to pilot- and demonstration-scale installations. But much has been learned and the successful commissioning last year of Hywind Scotland - the world's first floating offshore wind farm - heralds the beginning of the take-off' stage for the technology.

Now, the focus is on moving beyond the pilot and demonstration-scale projects and towards the commercialisation and up-scaling of floating offshore wind. And like those achieved in both the onshore and bottom-fixed offshore wind sectors, with technological development and up-scaling come cost reductions. Floating wind is expected to follow a similar downward trajectory over the next decade, making it cost-competitive with other renewable energy sources.
