What we can learn from the offshore wind energy cost out journey
Less than 30 years after Vindeby started to deliver energy to 2,200 Danish households in 1991, offshore wind power has become a competitive, scalable and powerful source of renewable energy. Today, offshore wind power, together with onshore wind and solar power, is becoming the cornerstone in the quest to create a world that runs entirely on green energy.
With costs decreasing, renewable power production makes electrification an increasingly attractive option, enabling large scale phase out of fossil fuels in transport, heating and industry. And as electrification becomes increasingly feasible in more sectors, the energy system will also be able to utilise even more energy from renewable power sources.
