The offshore industry is booming. By 2030, up to 8,000 new wind turbines are to go up along the country’s North Sea coast.
On Course - Exploiting Wind Energy
While on a trade mission to the European Union, New Jersey's Democratic governor, Phil Murphy, has called for German industry to deepen ties with his state, especially in the energy sector.
Danish energy group Orsted has officially opened the Walney Extension project, the biggest offshore wind farm in the world. The farm will cement Britain's role as the largest offshore wind market.
France is getting into offshore wind energy with the recent launch of a cutting-edge pilot project: one of the few floating wind turbines existing in the world. Studies suggest France is set to become Europe's second biggest wind energy producer, after Germany. Local and national authorities are helping to power that transition and slash nuclear power's overwhelming dominance in the energy mix.
