There are currently 16 offshore wind farms under construction in Europe totaling 4.9 GW of power capacity. During the first six months of 2014, 224 new offshore wind turbines, totaling 781 megawatts (MW), were fully grid connected in Europe — 25 percent less than during the same period in 2013 (1,045 MW). Also during this period, 282 wind turbines have been installed but not connected, making a total of 310 offshore turbines awaiting grid connection. Once connected they will add a further 1,200 MW of offshore wind energy capacity.
