To Enerzine [Fr] the world largest offshore wind farm has gone online in the Irish sea. Walney 2 has a capacity of 367,2 MW, enough to power 320,000 British households. It was also the fastest ever installation.
The farm will however quickly lose its title to other projects set to come online in the United Kingdom as well. Indeed, both the Greater Gabbard (500MW) and the London Array (630MW) fams will come online in 2012.
On a global scale, REVE notes that :” Global wind farm capacity accounted for approximately 197 GW in 2010 and will rise to 1,750 GW by 2030, finds a new report from Transparency Market Research. “
