According to DNV GL’s 2020 energy transition report, global wind capacity has been growing steadily since the early installations in the 1980s. Installed capacity reached 729 GW in the beginning of 2020. We forecast 1 TW in 2023, 2 TW in 2031, 4 TW in 2041, and 6.2 TW in 2050, of which 1.3 TW will be offshore. These developments are thanks to larger turbines, mega-sized projects, and a more dedicated offshore supply-chain. In addition, the 2020s will see floating wind progress to full-scale demonstration projects and on to commercial-scale deployments. We predict that floating offshore wind projects will have 255 GW of installed capacity by 2050.
This webinar series will showcase how DNV GL can support your organization as you look to transition into offshore wind – from applying standards to turbine analysis. You will also hear from a number of our European clients over the series on how they have managed wind projects supported by DNV GL’s offshore structural analysis software, Sesam and Bladed. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from their successes and increase your knowledge to position yourself for the present and future projects.
