Emerging Offshore Wind Markets is our guide to 18 key emerging markets for investors in the offshore wind sector.
As profit margins in European offshore wind have been squeezed in recent years by tenders and fluctuating power prices, developers and investors have been on the lookout for deals and projects in untapped markets. These ambitions have been backed by governments, and this means the offshore wind market is now global in a way it wasn’t even two years ago.
But which of these countries have the most potential for investors? And what are the risks? These are the questions that we will answer in this special report.
This will be our guide for investors in 18 key emerging markets in offshore wind, where we will analyse their potential based on factors including government support, wind resources and investment risk. Our main focus is on Asia-Pacific, Europe and North America.
The report also includes an exclusive interview with LM Wind Power’s CEO Duncan Berry, who talked to us about LM’s integration with General Electric, following its €1.5bn buyout in April 2017; the company’s strategy; and how technological innovation can help companies in the offshore wind industry to grow and go global.
In addition, we talked to MHI Vestas CEO Philippe Kavafyan about the offshore turbine maker’s approach to global growth; and we analysed the offshore wind sector in Turkey.
You'll find these insights an interesting read whether you’re new to the wind market or a seasoned investor.
