There are 64 GW of offshore wind installed and operating across the world today. The industry has blown away all expectations since the first turbine was installed at sea in 1991, and continues to break records each year, making it one of the fastest growing industries in the world.

of the needed offshore wind capacity to achieve net zero
Despite the rapid growth of offshore wind, a lot more capacity will need to be installed in the coming decades in order to decarbonise energy systems globally, and help the world avoid the worst impacts of climate change. The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) estimates that at least 2,000 GW of offshore wind will need to be installed by 2050 to achieve net zero.

Ambitions are rising

Luckily, more and more countries are turning to offshore wind as a key technology to help ensure energy security, reduce carbon emissions, and create new job and economic opportunities.

As a large-scale, cost competitive, and reliable renewable energy source, offshore wind will be an important cornerstone of global clean energy systems and sustainable economies.

Offshore Wind Learning estimates that nearly 1,000,000 people will need to enter the sector in the next decade in order to meet this growing demand and keep the world on track to meet net zero.

However, it is no easy task scaling up a skilled workforce at this scale, and we need to attract as many people as possible to the offshore wind industry. Offshore Wind Learning was developed to help fill this knowledge and skills gap, and make sure that offshore wind can fulfil its important role to help the world avoid the worst impacts of climate change.

Are you one in a million?

With over one million people needed in the offshore wind sector in the next decade, now is the time to start your Offshore Wind Learning journey to take advantage of these opportunities and learn more about the energy of the future, today.
