Closing

Significant order volumes for new offshore projects will be necessary to sustain the economies of scale required to reduce costs even more. To maintain these cost reductions, Europe must build at least 4 GW per year. Germany, being one of the key markets, should build more than the 730 MW envisioned for each year.
