About this book

Introduction

Offshore wind energy is one of the most promising and fastest growing alternative energy sources in the world. Offshore Wind Energy Cost Modeling provides a methodological framework to assess installation and decommissioning costs, and using examples from the European experience, provides a broad review of existing processes and systems used in the offshore wind industry.

Offshore Wind Energy Cost Modeling provides a step-by-step guide to modeling costs over four sections. These sections cover:

·Background and introductory material,

·Installation processes and vessel requirements,

·Installation cost estimation, and

·Decommissioning methods and cost estimation.

 This self-contained and detailed treatment of the key principles in offshore wind development is supported throughout by visual aids and data tables. Offshore Wind Energy Cost Modeling is a key resource for anyone interested in the offshore wind industry, particularly those interested in the technical and economic aspects of installation and decommissioning.  The book provides a reliable point of reference for industry practitioners and policy makers developing generalizable installation or decommissioning cost estimates.
