Following upon the report’s main findings, we will discuss global opportunities and the new growth target for the Norwegian offshore wind industry. Meet us in Arendal or follow the launch and discussion on Zoom.

Arendalsuka is known to be one of the largest and most important political gatherings in Norway. Ahead of this year’s parliamentary elections, offshore wind has become a hot topic in the Norwegian political debate. With regard to the important role that offshore wind could play in the ongoing global energy transition, we want to present our annual global market report during this important event and discuss the opportunities for of the Norwegian supply chain.

Global Offshore Wind 2021 Annual Market Report

Key findings from this year’s report show that development of offshore wind is now speeding up across the globe. Although Europe is still the largest market, new projects are launched in in China, Asia-Pacific and the Americas almost every week.

The report includes data and forecasts for the entire global industry. The report also provides deep insight into the entire supply chain of offshore wind globally.
