Offshore wind overtakes oil and gas

Offshore wind overtakes oil and gas

There was a change of power in the energy sector in 2015. For the first time ever, offshore wind had a better turnover than oil and gas. It is presented in an analysis of the Danish offshore industry that Region Syddanmark has prepared.

"Offshore wind power is growing, and if we look at the trend over a number of years, there is every indication that wind will be significantly larger than oil and gas," says Anders Brædstrup, development consulent in Region Syddanmark to DR/Syd.

In 2015, offshore wind's turnover was 62 billion kroner. That is 7 billion more than turnover in the oil and gas industry, which was at 55 billion kroner. The main reason is the low oil price during 2015, but it marks a significant change.

Going forward, a number of northern European Energy Ministers intend to expand the number of offshore wind farms in the North Sea.

"The vision must of course be followed up with concrete plans, but there is reason to believe that there is a political will to implement it. It will mean that the number of wind turbines will be multiplied," says Anders Brædstrup.

Offshore turbines generated 62 billion kroner in 2015, an increase of 4 billion kroner compared to the year before. Oil and gas generated 55 billion kroner in 2015. That was a decrease of 32 billion kroner compared to 2014.
