The increase is partially due to the startup of HornSea One, the world's largest offshore wind project with 174 turbines. The rapid increase in capacity meant that renewable output overtook the share of generation from gas for the first time, setting a new record and providing a commercial basis for more investment.
"Wind remains the principal source of renewable generation. For the first time offshore wind had a larger share of renewable generation than onshore wind with 25.1 pct and 23.7 pct respectively," according to a BEIS statement.

Governor Cuomo's Green New Deal climate and clean energy initiative puts the Empire State on a path to being entirely carbon-neutral across all sectors of the economy and establishing a goal to achieve a zero-carbon emissions electricity sector by 2040, faster than any other state. It builds on New York's ramp-up of clean energy including a $2.9 billion investment in 46 large-scale renewable projects across, the creation of more than 150,000 jobs in New York’s clean energy sector, a commitment to develop nearly 1,700 MW of offshore wind by 2024, and 1,700 pct growth in the distributed solar sector since 2012.
The recently passed Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act mandates the Green New Deal's clean energy targets: nine gigawatts of offshore wind by 2035, six gigawatts of distributed solar by 2025, and three gigawatts of energy storage by 2030, while calling for an orderly and just transition to clean energy that creates jobs and continues fostering a green economy. The CLCPA also directs New York State agencies and authorities to collaborate with stakeholders to develop a plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 85 pct from 1990 levels by 2050 and aim to invest 40 pct of clean energy and energy efficiency program resources to benefit disadvantaged communities.

The unit does not require a yaw system for the turbine to face the wind nor a pitching mechanism to turn the rotor blades. Accordingly, fewer moving parts incur lower maintenance and operating costs. The SeaTwirl S2, 1MW turbine is expected to be available in 2020.

In combination with future carbon neutral fuels like biofuels and electro fuels, the DecarbonICE technology can create carbon negative shipping and thus contribute to atmospheric carbon reduction at a significantly lower cost than shore-based CCS. capture.
