OREAC: 1.4 TW of offshore wind by 2050 achievable

OFFSHORE WIND | 1,400 GW of offshore wind globally by 2050 is entirely achievable considering the resource potential, technology innovation, and government appetite to position offshore wind at the centre of the global energy transition, the Ocean Renewable Energy Action Coalition (OREAC) said.

OREAC estimates that offshore wind could provide around 24 million years of employment, defined as full-time work for one person per calendar year with 260 working days, by 2050, if the 1,400 GW vision is achieved. This job creation potential is calculated using IRENA data, and covers the full value chain of offshore wind, from procurement to construction to decommissioning.
