Researchers have calculated that: The Era of subsidy-free Offshore wind turbines has begun

flourishing business with wind turbines at sea, is expected to grow further in the future and is in the Mature markets of Western Europe virtually self-supporting. This was the result of an eight-member group of researchers from various disciplines in an article in the prestigious journal "Nature Energy", which was published this Monday evening. The authors come from those five countries, which account for around 80 percent of the global installed Offshore capacity in: These are Germany, Belgium, great Britain, the Netherlands and Denmark.

the authors have Examined all of the auction results for Offshore wind farms in these five "Mature markets" in the period from 2005 to 2019. After it has earlier given vary from country to country funding, similar to the procedure between the planning and commissioning-now: project engineer develop new equipment and offer in auctions to government-guaranteed funding rates in Germany since 2017.

The award goes to those project developers who require the least; the support will cost in the vicinity of the real costs back, and the subsidies gradually decline. If the project planners are not at the same time, the operator, to acquire then, investors of the developed projects and the wind farms with twelve (Denmark) to 20 (Germany) years, and the facts remuneration to the grid.

"An extraordinary success story,"

For comparability, the researchers have calculated the average revenue per megawatt hour over a service life of 25 years, continue to operate after the funding end, so included, with the result that "the Era of subsidy-free Offshore wind turbines" is expected to be in all the "Mature markets" it's only a matter of time after the first projects in Germany and the Netherlands have already been developed in the absence of subsidies.
