China breezes to the lead of offshore wind power race

21.1 gigawatts of offshore wind generation was commissioned in 2021, according to the Global Wind Energy Council. This is roughly equivalent to 21 nuclear reactors. The size of this one-year expansion alone accounts for about 40% of the total of 57.17 GW of offshore wind power to date. China is responsible for the bulk of this growth. The country commissioned 16.9 GW of offshore wind capacity last year, or 80% of the total, more than quadruple the volume in 2020. In comparison, Europe added 3.31 GW in 2021 -- a modest 13% gain. One factor that fueled China's surge in wind farms was a change to the government's feed-in-tariffs. Click to read more, article by Nikkei Asia.
