Currently, China ranks first in the world with 157 GW of capacity, the UK is second with 98 GW, followed by the US (82 GW), Sweden (75 GW) and Brazil (63 GW). In terms of operational capacity, China leads the world with 24.5 GW of installed capacity, while the UK ranks second with 10.5 GW, followed by Germany (7.7 GW), the Netherlands (3 GW), and Denmark (2.3 GW), respectively.

In terms of floating wind power roadmap, the UK ranked first with a capacity of 32 GW, Sweden ranked second with 25 GW, followed by Taiwan Province of China (21 GW), Ireland (16 GW), respectively.

It is reported that the UK raised the country’s 2030 offshore wind target to 50 GW last year and decided to speed up the permitting process to achieve the new target.
