Installing wind turbines at the world’s best offshore sites would provide more than enough clean energy to meet global electricity demands, a study has found.

Offshore wind farms could become a cornerstone of the world’s power supply, researchers at the International Energy Agency (IEA) reported.

The potential of the green energy source is being unlocked by new wind turbine technology and increasing reductions in setup and operating costs, they added.

Replacing fossil fuels with renewables will be crucial to meet the globally-agreed goal of limiting the average temperature rise to below 2 degrees Celsius this century.

Power generated from wind turbines at sea only accounts for 0.3 per cent of global electricity generation today, said the IEA in what it called ‘the most comprehensive’ study of offshore wind to date.
