Offshore Wind Update: Global Cumulative Capacity to Reach over 100 GW by 2026.

2017 has represented a positive year for the offshore wind industry, according to the latest edition of Westwood’s World Offshore Wind Market Forecast. The industry is rapidly maturing, and the market developments seen over the last year have resulted in Westwood forecasting a more positive outlook, with global cumulative capacity to exceed 100 GW by 2026 (~20% uplift on last year’s report).

Zero subsidy bids for 3 German wind farms were approved in April, while the world’s first full-scale floating wind farm commenced operations in October 2017. September’s contract for difference (CfD) auction in the UK, saw projects securing strike prices as low as £57.50/MWh (compared with an average of £117/MWh, February 2015). Dong rebranded to Ørsted and entered new frontiers such as Taiwan, where the company signed an MOU for the 2 GW Changhua project.

  • The UK, China, and Germany will be the key contributors to the market, with combined expenditure of €214bn over 2017-2026. This represents approximately 48% of forecast global expenditure over the same period*.
  • Global Opex over 2017-2026 is expected to amount to €70bn, with approximately 61% of this allocated to China, Germany, and the UK*.
  • Westwood expects more than 16,100 turbines and more than 18,000 foundations to be installed over 2017-2026.
