It takes power to make power. Constructing offshore wind farms will need standby power from auxiliary generators for a range of functions. When provided reliably, the project is more likely to complete on time.
The wind industry has grown to the point where it is now the fourth largest source of electrical power in North America after natural gas, coal and nuclear. Industry reports indicate that global electricity generation from wind energy reached 60 GW in 2016. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Wind Vision report says the United States may be able to meet 10% of its electricity needs through wind power by 2020, 20% by 2030, and 35% by 2050.
