Shaping the future of energy through the offshore wind

Offshore wind has a strong foothold as an energy source in Europe with more than 15 GW installed capacity, and with a potential to reach between 50 and 70 GW by 2030.

Offshore wind energy is at the core of how Europe can go carbon-neutral. The European Commission has big goals for offshore wind: between 230 and 450 GW by 2050. Reaching 450 GW is part of a Commission scenario to deliver climate neutrality by 2050. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), offshore wind could become the number one source of power generation in Europe by 2042. Scaling up from 20 GW today to 450 GW by 2050 will require a visionary approach.

The Polish Baltic Sea has a potential of 28 GW.
