According to Oxford-based independent energy market analytics company Aurora Energy Research, reaching 40GW of offshore wind capacity by 2030 will require a clear government strategy, an investment of at least £50 billion ($69.34 billion) and a methodical approach for grid development and advanced infrastructure for integrating the electricity generated by offshore wind farms into the electricity grid. An investment of £160 million ($221.91 million) will also be need to upgrade the country's ports and factories to boost turbine production.

The project is is part of the AquaVentus venture, which envisages the installation of 10 GW of electrolysis capacity in the North Sea by 2035, the German energy group said today. The AquaVentus electrolysers will generate green hydrogen from offshore wind, with the island of Helgoland serving as the main hub. The green hydrogen will be transported to the continent via the AquaDuctus pipeline, which will be able to carry up to one million tonnes of hydrogen a year from 2035.
The first step in the initiative will be the completion of a detailed feasibility study, according to the announcement.

After reviewing 16 possible ocean energy project sits the report concluded wave and ocean energy was not suitable for Barbados due to the level of "commercial-scale un-readiness" and recommended development of fixed and floating offshore wind turbine systems located off the island's north coast.
