Wood Mackenzie said most of the upgrades will be in the medium term boosting average annual increases by 2.7GW between 2020 and 2023.Wood Mackenzie director of Americas power & renewables research and lead author of the report Luke Lewandowski said: “With 16GW of offshore wind power capacity installed in Europe by the end of 2018 and more than 47GW expected to come online in the region from 2018 to 2027, the European offshore sector continues to be a focal point of growth for the wind power industry.The report added that favourable announcements from the governments of Japan and South Korea resulted in a more than 1.5GW upgrade quarter-on-quarter (QoQ) on its projections. By the end of the consultancy’s 10-year outlook, the two countries will each have an installed offshore base of more than 2GW.“A significant rate of growth, considering that neither country has more than 100MW of offshore wind power capacity installed today,” Wood Mackenzie said.The company also upgraded its outlook for the US offshore market. “Attractive price signals are expected to motivate an increase in state-level procurement activity from both pioneering states, such as Massachusetts and New York, as well as new entrants over the long-term, such as California and Delaware,” said Lewandowski. The upgrade will increase installed offshore capacity in the US to approximately 10GW by the end of 2027, representing 15% of all new capacity over the 10-year outlook, the report said.More: Offshore helping ‘drive 680GW global wind growth’ Wood Mackenzie estimates 680GW of new wind power will come online by 2027last_img
