offshore wind farms articles

Offshore wind farms - Giant wind farms located offshore are regarded as a more efficient and less intrusive means of harnessing wind energy, with the UK, Germany and Denmark now leading the way in the development of a new generation of offshore turbines. Offshore wind farms are significantly more expensive than their onshore cousins, but with the largest turbines able to deliver up to 7MW of capacity each they are capable of delivering huge increases in clean energy output.
