CNN Business | All 30 million British homes could be powered by offshore wind in 2030

Britain just gave a huge vote of confidence in the ability of offshore wind power to lead the world’s pivot away from fossil fuels.

While offshore wind farms cost about twice as much to set up as onshore wind farms, they produce a lot more energy. That’s because the wind turbines themselves can be a lot bigger, enabling them to capture more wind and at lower speeds, he told CNN Business.

Edwards expects that costs will decline further over time as development increases.
