Source: IRENA Renewable Cost Database and Auctions Database Falling renewable power costs signal a real paradigm shift in the competitiveness of different power generation options. This includes cheaper electricity from renewables as a whole, as well as the very low costs now being attained from the best solar PV and onshore wind projects.

Renewable energy produced in marine, or offshore, environments is dominated by bottom-founded wind turbines.  

This talk will present historical data and trends for electricity costs produced by offshore turbines.  The big picture of future offshore renewable energy developments in the US will be presented.

The US market will be contrasted with Europe, China and India and predictions for larger turbines in deeper waters, requiring floating structures will be discussed.

Rapid acceleration of the offshore wind industry in the USA is predicted.

The important market for non-wind marine renewables will be mentioned.

Who Should Attend
Those interested in the enormous potential for accelerated growth in offshore renewable energy developments worldwide and in the US in particular. The US DOE has identified the need for research on challenging conditions such as deep water floating foundations, seabed conditions that are not well understood, hurricane impacts, and environmental constraints to installation and operations. Professionals engaged in finding answers to these challenges will benefit from understanding the market.
