Europe powered by Green Energy

How the North Seas can lead the change

The North European Potential

Europe sits on one of the world’s best offshore wind resources in the North Seas. Here, wind speeds are high, relatively constant and the waters are shallow, providing good conditions for bottom fixed foundations.


By 2030, the North Seas can supply 80% of European electricity demand.

The Dream has become reality

It is now cheaper to install offshore wind power than to build new fossil-fuel based power plants.The cost of offshore wind energy has fallen 63% in six years.

What will it take?

Four principles could help guide our thinking about how such a framework should look for offshore wind power. We call them the four C’s.
