MEXICO CITY - In 2021, offshore wind energy incorporated 21.1 gigawatts (GW) globally and reached 56 gigawatts (GW) of installed capacity.
According to the Global Report on Offshore Wind Energy (GWEC), this technology is expected to have a "new era of growth".
Currently, 23 GW of wind projects are being built worldwide, mainly in Europe, Asia, the United States, China, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Taiwan, France and Germany.
But Mexico, despite its potential, does not have even one megawatt of offshore wind power installed.
Tamaulipas has even developed studies that show that this state alone has the potential to install 29 GW.
The GWEC shows that countries are preparing for exceptional growth as they opt for this technology and establish new sustainable incorporation objectives aimed at Net Zero goals.
The report shows that governments are increasingly ambitious about offshore wind.
"GWEC's market intelligence revises its 2030 outlook by 45.3 GW, or 16.7 percent, from last year's report, and 260 GW of new offshore wind capacity could be added in 2022-2030, bringing total installations to 316 GW by the end of this decade," according to the report.
