Since the 2016 edition of this report, the offshore wind industry has experienced a number of changes, which include the evolution in turbine size, growth in project scale, supply chain consolidation and cost efficiencies. In 2016 the industry saw the installation of the very first US offshore wind farm, whilst in 2017 the UK announced the achievement of its 2020 levelised cost of electricity (LCoE) target 4 years ahead of schedule. As the market is becoming less reliant on government subsidies, DONG Energy and EnBW have won the first zero-subsidy bids in German auctions.
