2,000GW Offshore Wind by 2050
IRENA & GWEC Key Findings
A new initiative published by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), shows a rapidly strengthening market for offshore wind.
Key numbers are shown below:
- 2020 – 35GW installed worldwide
- 2030 – 380GW worldwide
- 2050 – 2,000GW worldwide
Representing growth of 7-fold from 2020 to 2030 and 8.5-fold growth from 2030 to 2050.
That’s a sustained compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over 30 years of 14.4%.

At Vidi Energy we believe now is the time to invest in floating offshore wind, ahead of a massive, predicted expansion.
