Offshore Wind Power Seen Growing by Record 4.2 Gigawatts in 2015

Offshore Wind Power Seen Growing by Record 4.2 Gigawatts in 2015

See here for the article.

Offshore wind power is not economically viable in some countries, where there is lots of land available at a low value, and/or the continental shelf drops off too steeply. Australia is one such example.

Nevertheless, this is good news for sustainability. 4.2 Gigawatts is equivalent to the rated power generated of 2 and 5/8s or 2.625 Hazelwood Power plants (rated power of one plant is 1.6 GW).
