In many parts of the world, wind energy has already grown to be a mainstream energy source. This growth has long been driven by concerns about global climate change, mainly in the developed world and especially in Europe.

The possibility of locating wind turbines in the sea bed has opened up a new frontier for wind power, especially in the countries of northern Europe, where the availability of relatively shallow coastal waters has combined with the need to find space for much larger projects than are possible on land.

The pioneer in offshore wind farming has been Denmark, which has installed the two largest wind parks in the sea - 160 MW at Horns Rev in the North Sea and 158 MW at Nysted in the Baltic. Two further large developments at the same sites are now progressing.

The UK has also taken on a leading role, with 214 MW already built in four locations, a further 1,000 MW+ with agreement to proceed across eight sites, and even larger individual projects (of up to 1,000 MW each) planned within three strategic offshore areas identified by the UK government.

Aruvian Research brings a research report on the Offshore Wind Power Market in the European Union - Analyzing the Offshore Wind Power Market in EU.

Aruvian's research report Analyzing the Offshore Wind Power Market in EU starts off with an analysis of the basics about wind power and then takes a look at the various factors driving the wind power industry worldwide, and especially in the European Union. The economic feasibility of wind power is also a factor that is touched upon during the analysis of factors driving growth in the wind power industry worldwide. An introduction to offshore wind power and how it is impacting the energy industry worldwide is also discussed.

We analyze the overall market for offshore wind power in the European Union, along with a country-wise analysis of the major regions involved in offshore wind power developments, the benefits of offshore wind power for the European Union, the challenges facing offshore wind power in the EU, the role of offshore wind power in meeting the targets of the Kyoto Protocol, and an analysis of the major offshore wind farms in the EU.

A case study takes a look at the fast-growing offshore wind energy in China. Economic value of an offshore grid in the European Union is also described here.

The developing supply chain in the EU offshore wind industry takes a look at two cost drivers that include the turbine supply chain in the industry and also the availability of substructures.

Leading offshore wind turbine manufacturers such as Siemens AG, Vestas, Nordex, Senvion SE, BARD Engineering, and Areva are analyzed keeping in mind their role in the offshore wind sector.

The future of the offshore wind power industry in the EU is also looked at in the report.

This research report from Aruvian Research on the offshore wind power market in the EU is a comprehensive study on this subject, and provides you with a complete picture of what is going on in the offshore wind power markets in the European Union.
