Event - Global Offshore Wind 2016
The UK has been the world leader in offshore wind since October 2008, with more installed capacity than any other country and the largest pipeline of upcoming projects. As of 2016, there is a total of over 5GW installed in UK waters and around 10GW is projected by 2020, by which point offshore wind will supply 10 per cent of the UK’s electricity annually.
Employment growth in the sector has been substantial since the numbers were first sourced in 2008 and now stands at around 6,580 full time employees..
