Offshore wind power at Siemens Gamesa

The winds of change have never been stronger

Navigating the offshore revolution

30 years of powerful performance
30 years ago, we became a pioneer in offshore wind when we installed the world’s first offshore wind power project, Vindeby, in 1991. Now, with a growing imperative to meet climate challenges, we are more determined than ever. As the global market leader in offshore wind, we are fully committed to being part of the solution. Together with our partners, we aim to power the future of our industry.

Strong future for offshore wind power in the global energy mix
The demand for global electricity is forecast to increase. In the worldwide quest for more renewable energy sources, the rapid development of offshore wind power suggests the power source will play a major part in our sectors future. The exponential growth of offshore wind energy can be attributed to several factors, including abundant space and greater, consistent wind resources, as well as technological advantages for offshore wind with high availability and capacity factors.

A record +5GW of offshore wind capacity was installed during 2020, bringing the global operational offshore wind capacity to ~33GW, keeping growth on track despite challenges caused by COVID-19. . 2020 saw the implementation of 15 new power plants, meaning that there are now more than 160 operational offshore powerplants worldwide. The UK remains the world’s biggest market with +10 GW installed capacity, followed by Germany with ~8 GW and China currently in third place with ~7 GW installed.    

This growth in offshore wind is predicted to accelerate over the coming years, with a global outlook of ~200 GW predicted installations by 2030. This growth outlook is solidified by +30 GW of new capacity expected to be allocated in the coming years.  

Innovative new ventures such as green hydrogen and floating offshore wind will help to decarbonize hard-to-abate sectors and allow the expansion of new markets previously limited by geographical conditions, indicating a bright future ahead of offshore wind.
