Offshore Wind 40% Cheaper By 2023

flow

The Dutch national energy bureau ECN says that by 2023, the cost of offshore wind energy could be reduced with 40%. Way to achieve this:

  1. Technological innovation, like larger rotors and larger distance between turbines (15%)
  2. Design improvement, wind-park layout, logistics (6%)
  3. Efficiency project developer (10%)
  4. Cooperation between wind parks (10%)
  5. Optimization organisation & (capital) cost (3%)

This would mean that the price of our virtual barrel of oil equivalent, calculated here, would be reduced to $6/barrel (if that wind energy is applied for mobility purposes).
