Deep water: The next step for offshore wind energy
Deep water: The next step for offshore wind energy

1st February 2014

Organisation(s): The European Wind Energy Association

Topic(s): Offshore wind, Wind energy

This report is based on the work of the ‘Deep offshore and new foundation concepts’ Task Force, part of the European Wind Energy Association’s (EWEA) Offshore Wind Industry Group. The Task Force evaluates the current situation and the steps that are needed for the large scale deployment of deep offshore wind energy.
Between October 2011 and June 2012, 16 leading European companies researching or operating deep offshore projects met to identify challenges and provide recommendations to the industry and policy makers.

Workers wanted: the EU wind energy sector skills gap
Workers wanted: the EU wind energy sector skills gap

1st August 2013

Organisation(s): The European Wind Energy Association

Topic(s): Capacity development, Education, Public engagement, Wind energy

The European wind industry has grown rapidly. Installed capacity has increased from around 13 GW in 2000 to more than 100 GW in 20121. A consequence of this has been a failure for skills development to keep pace.

In June 2013 the European Council agreed on a comprehensive approach to combat youth unemployment. This report shows that the European wind industry can play a key role in combatting unemployment.

Nearly 50,000 additional trained staff will be needed by the industry by 2030. By that year, operations and maintenance will become the greatest source of new jobs and demand for trained staff.

TWENTIES project: final report, short version
TWENTIES project: final report, short version

1st June 2013

Organisation(s): The European Wind Energy Association

Topic(s): Engineering and project delivery, Wind energy

The TWENTIES Project (Transmission system operation with a large penetration of wind and other renewable electricity sources in electricity networks using innovative tools and integrated energy solutions) was coordinated by Red Eléctrica de España, the Spanish Transmission System Operator, and ran from 2010 to 2013. Its aim was to advance the development and deployment of new technologies facilitating the widespread integration of more onshore and offshore wind power into the European electricity system by 2020 and beyond.

 This report describes the main findings for each of the six demonstration projects.

Eastern winds: emerging European wind power markets
Eastern winds: emerging European wind power markets

1st February 2013

Organisation(s): The European Wind Energy Association

Topic(s): Renewables, Wind energy

Central, eastern and south-eastern Europe is Europe’s new wind energy frontier. Signicant growth, opportunity and benets can be expected from and for the region in the years ahead.

These newly emerged and emerging markets are not only important in their own right, but they have increased perceived importance given the state of wind energy markets elsewhere in Europe. These new markets look set to offset, to a greater or lesser extent, declines in the near future in some of the more mature southern European markets. It therefore becomes all the more important for the European wind energy industry that the newly emerged and emerging eastern European markets are able to achieve their full potential.
