Offshore Wind Energy Utilisation

  • Erich Hau


In recent years, utilising the wind energy offshore, that is to say siting wind turbines at sea off the coasts, has evolved from a one-time vision of the wind pioneers into reality. In this area, too, the utilisation of wind energy is progressing in leaps and bounds - regardless of all the sceptics. What are the motives behind this development?
