Global Offshore Wind Transmission Report 2020: Market Size & Opportunity, Recent Policy Developments & Mandates, Costs, Existing & Planned Projects, Key Technology Players -

The "Offshore Wind Transmission Report" report has been added to's offering.

Offshore wind energy is poised to grow significantly over the next decade. Strong support from policymakers and regulators, the drastic fall in technology costs, demonstrated competencies in installation, and economic success in recent tenders has spurred growth not only in Europe but also in the Americas and Asia.

While offshore wind has garnered the political support and investor confidence, several challenges remain. A key bottleneck is the availability and development of grid infrastructure, both offshore and onshore. This challenge, however, presents the opportunity to deploy new and innovative technologies.

The Offshore Wind Transmission Report will analyze the market size and opportunity for offshore wind transmission across the globe. It will provide an overview of the recent policy developments and mandates for offshore wind development, examine the costs and present the various models and technology options for developing offshore wind transmission infrastructure. It will provide information on existing and planned offshore transmission projects and on the key technology players in the industry.

The report will comprise four parts.

Part 1 will be the Executive Summary.

Part 2 of the report will provide an analysis of the global offshore wind transmission sector. It will have seven distinct sections:

  • Offshore wind developments
  • Market size and opportunity
  • Offshore transmission development routes
  • Offshore wind transmission technology
  • Key technology players
  • Offshore wind transmission costs
  • List of offshore wind transmission projects

Part 3 of the report will profile over 20 countries where offshore wind projects already exists, are underway or planned in the near future. Each country profile will include:

  • Industry structure
  • Recent policy and regulatory developments
  • Existing offshore wind generation and transmission capacity
  • Planned or proposed offshore wind generation and transmission capacity
  • Existing OWT projects (developer, capacity, technology, investment and key contractors)
  • Upcoming and planned OWT projects (developer, capacity, technology, expected investment and key contractors)

Note: The data on various parameters for existing and upcoming/planned projects will be provided wherever such details are available

Part 4 of the report will be the appendix. It will include a note on sources and methodology and list of acronyms.

This report is indispensible for any organisation interested in the offshore wind energy industry - utilities, developers, system operators, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, EPC contractors, service and technology providers, investors/lenders, research institutes, industry consultants, regulatory agencies, development institutions, etc.

The report will be available in a Power Point presentation (converted to PDF)
