Offshore wind is not only expanding as new markets emerge globally, but also as the countries with existing offshore wind farms and those under development already eye earmarking further areas where offshore wind turbines could be installed.
BLIX Consultancy and Pondera Consult have carried out a study on the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) of future offshore wind farm sites in the Netherlands.
