Cheaper clean energies continue to propel governments across the world to invest in wind and solar infrastructure over the coming decades. Progress on renewable energy systems is picking up, with traditional forms of fuel like coal and oil falling to new solar and wind farms. New data from some of the leaders in renewable energies shows how offshore wind farm installations are already ramping up globally and are predicted to continue their rapid growth.
In data collected by the International Energy Agency, countries like China, Germany and the U.K. are all seeing significant additions to renewable gigawatt energy in the form of offshore wind farms. China stands out as the clear leader with a yearly projection of an additional 2.8 gigawatts of energy added from offshore wind farms over the next three years. Offshore wind projects in Germany and the U.K. have also been picking up steam over the last few years and show continued growth over the next three, while other countries’ offshore wind farm projections show a clear positive trend over the coming years.
