A new report by a non-profit association WindEurope summarises construction and financing activity in European offshore wind farms from 1 January to 31 December 2020. The report demonstrates that Europe now has a total installed offshore wind capacity of 25 GW. That corresponds to 5,402 grid-connected wind turbines across 12 countries, with an addition of 2.9 GW of offshore capacity during 2020.

With current 25 GW of offshore wind energy being produced, Europe could reach its goals to build 300 GW of offshore wind by 2050.
