Offshore wind can meet Paris goals

Offshore wind can meet Paris goals

10-10-2017 14:00:00

Offshore wind technology can help reach the COP21 targets from Paris and generate 6,100 TWh annually from 2040. But it is necessary that there is political will behind the desire. The Danish vice president of Siemens Gamesa, Bent Christensen, stated this at the opening of this year's Offshore WIND Conference in Amsterdam.

But with a current production of 717 TWh annually, the target is still far away, Bent Christensen noted. In the long run, offshore wind can provide Europe with energy independence, and Siemens is constantly working to reduce costs throughout the supply chain.

Here, Bent Bentensen specifically mentioned the Nissum Bredning project as valuable to Siemens because it serves as a test wind farm for the company where new technology that can save costs can be tested.
