The UK, Germany and Denmark have the most installed offshore wind; and therefore the most developed offshore grid networks.
The result is that opportunities to invest in offshore transmission networks are also concentrated in Europe. The UK has its Offshore Transmission Owner (OFTO) regime, which has attracted major institutions. Opportunities have also arisen in Germany.
But, beyond those markets, investment opportunities are still rare.
We tell you all you need to know about this niche market, and analyse what new opportunities could arise as nations including China, India, Japan and the US embrace offshore wind.
