Offshore wind in Europe 2020

Published on 11 February 2021


Europe added 2.9 GW of offshore capacity during 2020. That’s 356 new offshore wind turbines connected to the grid, across nine wind farms.

Europe now has a total installed offshore wind capacity of 25 GW. That corresponds to 5,402 grid-connected wind turbines across 12 countries.

Eight new offshore wind projects reached Final Decision Investment (FID) in four different countries during 2020, with construction due to start in the coming years. Investments in new assets accounted for €26.3bn in order to finance 7.1 GW of additional capacity.
