The report also noted 75 pct of the world's offshore wind farms are in European waters but by the end of the decade China is expected to host more than a fifth of the world's offshore wind turbines, equating to 52GW.
The report notes the offshore wind industry could create 900,000 jobs globally over the next decade and that every 1GW of offshore wind helped to avoid 3.5 million tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere .

The project, which is expected to come in at 7.9 billion yuan ($1.13 billion), will generate 1,390 million kWh of electricity per year, which is equivalent to 441,900 tons of standard coal and will satisfy the annual electricity demand of almost 2 million people when commissioned in early 2021.
The offshore wind power plant will be jointly financed, built and operated by China Energy with 62.5 pct and EDF Group holding the balance.

Although the country's total wind power reached 154 million KW as of June 2017, nearly triple the figure from 2012, the usage rate is low and Many wind turbines are halted and idle due local power grid failures.
Also, the price of wind and photovoltaic energy are still too high and still rely on subsidies to develop.
