Offshore wind: port cities are not resting on their laurels!

 Energy transition and circular economy 

For the International Energy Agency, investments in offshore wind are set to reach 900 billion euros by 2040, with a 15-fold increase in generation capacity by 15. While Europe is leading the way, port cities all over the world are taking a proactive approach to the issue, including in the United States, despite the Trump administration’s reluctance. Not a week goes by without some major project or initiative being announced, at varying stages of advancement from one country to the next, or even from one port to the next, depending on the extent to which the industry has developed locally. Examples announced in recent days include the creation of logistics hubs in Connecticut (USA) and France, prototype installations in Spain, and energy conversion strategies in Japan
