Wind power in Europe, unquestionable growth: The figures speak for themselves. 6.1 gigawatts (GW) of additional wind power were installed in Europe in the first half of 2017 (Source: WindEurope, July 2017). Of these, 4.8 GW of onshore wind capacity and 1.3 GW of offshore wind capacity (mostly installed wind).Offshore wind is therefore one of the main trends in energy transition. Increasingly competitive, it would produce up to twice as much energy as onshore wind.
