Offshore wind capacity in Europe is expected to reach 150GW in 20301. The majority of the sites currently being considered for offshore wind projects are situated close to the European coast, not further than 100km from shore. This is in part due to the high cost of grid connection, limited grid availability and the absence of a proper regulatory framework for wind farms that could feed. Northern Europe has become a test case for replacing coal with wind, especially offshore wind, and in warmer Southern Europe replacing it with solar power. But natural gas will still play a critical part in reducing carbon emissions by supporting the phase out of coal, so pessimists predicting the end of the offshore industry may be overreacting. It is highly likely that the last gas well will. European offshore wind has seen a strong and steady growth since the early 2000s.
