Estimating the Size of a Volatile Market: The Potential Opportunity for Global Offshore Wind Energy Manufactures in Light of Changing Technology and Governmental Incentives

  • Almost unlimited potential is seen in the offshore wind industry due to the exist-ence of stronger, steadier winds over the open sea and therefore it is expected to experience a remarkable growth. Wind power is one of the fastest-growing energy sources around the world and has great potential to offer clean and abundant ener-gy. Unlike onshore, where the landscape, trees and buildings distort the flow of the wind, there are no obstacles that influence the wind speed offshore, leading to a much more efficient energy generation potential. On the other hand, unknown to the vast public, there are several technical, infra-structural, and financial challenges facing the offshore wind industry, such as the dependence on wind-speed, the complex installation and operation process of wind farms offshore, as well as the harsh marine conditions and other challenges which are caused by the fact that the offshore wind industry still is a relatively immature market.
