The global energy transition will enable a sustainable economy and combat climate change. As the world electrifies, we see an exponential increase in demand for electricity from renewable energy sources. The wind of change is blowing offshore more than anywhere else: this unlimited sustainable source of power will provide 200GW of additional capacity in the coming decade.
Harnessing wind power to its full potential will require projects to move further offshore, go deeper into the ocean or float, thereby becoming even more complex and demanding in terms of technology and execution.
