Developing offshore wind to the level required to meet climate goals will require a concerted research effort by the international community, to help bring down costs and ensure the development is carried out in a sustainable way.
New York’s best bet for entering the era of offshore wind power is stacked up at the water’s edge in Connecticut.
The French Government has specified the location of two floating wind projects, around 250 MW each, and their subsequent extensions in the Mediterranean Sea.
