UNITED STATES: It has been a long time coming, but the US's first offshore wind project is now under construction. Deepwater Wind CEO Jeff Grybowski talks about the development of the 30MW Block Island and the company's plans for further growth in the sector.
FRANCE: Although France is yet to install its first offshore turbine, the government has identified four zones for floating wind energy pilot projects and is hoping these will help turn the country into a leader of this nascent technology.
EUROPE: For technologies such as offshore wind, which cannot yet compete in wholesale electricity markets, setting a suitable tariff is not easy. The problem is compounded as costs change with time.
EUROPE: After a period of some uncertainty, offshore wind costs are now moving downwards. The EU/FOWIND's Offshore Wind Policy and Market Assessment suggests that installed costs of offshore wind peaked at just under €4,000/kW in 2014 and are now falling.
