ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues related to the growth of offshore wind plants worldwide. Topics discussed include share of offshore wind in global installed energy capacity and potential of wind turbines, prospects for wind plants in future and various major offshore wind project around the world. It also discusses challenges include high construction and technology cost and lack of funding in expanding offshore wind development.
