The Struggle to Implement Offshore Wind Farms

Jan 6th, 2011 | By | Category: Wind

A decade from now, the Cape Wind saga may be remembered as the labor pain that helped birth a new industry. Although the U.S. boasts more installed onshore wind capacity than any other country, the nation lags in the offshore arena. European countries have put in place more than 1,000 offshore wind turbines since the early 1990s. China set up its first offshore wind farm last year, and it’s supplying power to 200,000 Shanghai households. A second plant, also in the East China Sea, will be built next year.
