WindEurope

How will offshore wind help Europe go carbon-neutral?

Specific Challenge: The contribution of offshore wind power to the energy mix is expected to increase significantly by 2030.

Specific Challenge: Ocean energy could provide clean, predictable, indigenous and reliable energy and contribute to the EU's objective of reaching a share of renewables of at least 32% of the EU’s gross final consumption by 2030.
