Floating offshore wind: what challenges?

This data-file ranks the greatest challenges for the floating offshore wind industry, by reviewing 50 recent patents, filed by leading companies.

These challenges are relatively immutable, and will likely double capex and levelized costs, compared with traditional offshore wind.

The potential for floating offshore wind is also location dependent, with inherent advantages, in some geographies over others.

These conclusions are spelled out in the data-file, in our short written note here, and fully backstopped in this data-file with details on all fifty patents.
