Offshore Wind: A $16B Business

Thursday, December 20, 2007
Offshore wind will see $16 billion of capital expenditure in the coming five year period as 4.5 GW of new capacity is installed, according to The World Offshore Wind Report 2008-2012, published by Douglas-Westwood. With just over 1.1 GW of capacity currently installed, this represents significant market growth and leads to an annual capital expenditure of over $5.2 billion by 2012. In comparison to the previous five year period, development and construction costs will rise by 51% for the period to 2012. Whilst this is impacting on some projects we are seeing energy majors pushing forward large projects through balance-sheet financing determined to gain early market share. In common with other reports of Douglas-Westwood’s acclaimed series, The World Offshore Wind Report is aimed at executive readers. The report does not assume detailed technical knowledge of the subject. For more information, Email publications@dw-1.com
