More than 16 GW of floating offshore wind to be installed globally by 2030, predicts new report

By Michelle Froese Quest Floating Wind Energy‘s latest report finds that developers are looking at offshore wind as a means of harvesting greater volumes of wind energy — and clean energy that’s of great benefit to the environment.
Advanced technology will continue to be an enabler for renewables and wind energy, according to Quest, which expects the floating offshore wind market to gain significant momentum in the coming years.
Conventional offshore wind farms are developed with bottom-fixed structures in relatively shallow, near-shore waters. However, according to Quest, 80% of the best wind resources lie in waters beyond the reach of bottom fixed (~60m). Floating
