Wind energy
Today, approximately 4% of the world's energy comes from wind power. The cost of wind power is falling: Onshore wind prices have fallen by 40% in a decade and offshore wind power by 30% from a decade earlier, making it competitive for the first time. The number of technical solutions in this area is increasing, as well as the number of start-ups in the field of wind energy focused on this rapidly growing market. For example, developing technologies for capturing high-altitude and offshore wind, bladeless and vertical axis turbines, as well as miniturbines that can be installed along roads to generate energy from the movement of passing vehicles.
Offshore wind turbines and platforms
The technical potential of offshore wind power is estimated at 71 TW (World Bank, 2021), of which 70% is in deep water suitable for offshore wind turbines. The floating wind market is potentially 8 times larger than the fixed offshore wind market. However, at present, the use of ocean resources is associated with high costs, the need for subsidies and environmental problems.

Technology advantages:
  • the oceans are an untapped resource: 71% of the Earth is covered by oceans;
  • more powerful wind: much more energy is available at sea than on land, when the wind speed doubles, the energy increases eight times; the sea wind is stronger and more reliable; studies show that offshore wind provides 30% more energy than land wind because ocean winds are 5-10% stronger;
  • locally produced energy: offshore wind power allows electricity to be generated close to urban areas (often close to the coast); locally produced energy means reduced transport losses and reduced infrastructure costs;
  • big market potential: offshore wind has a big market potential - energy experts estimate that between 7% and 11% of electricity in Europe will be generated by offshore wind by 2030, with a projected total production of 24.6 GW in 2020 and 86 GW in 2030
    In recent decades, wind energy has become an increasingly important source of clean energy. It not only reduces dependence on fossil fuels, but also contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, which makes it an important factor in the sustainable development of cities. One of the innovative solutions are offshore wind turbines and platforms that open up new opportunities for generating energy in marine conditions.

    One of the key elements of offshore wind farms are platforms for offshore wind turbines. These special designs allow wind turbines to be installed in open sea spaces where the wind speed is higher and more constant, which ensures more stable electricity generation. Platforms can be fixed or floating, depending on the depth of the water and other sea conditions.

    Floating vertical wind turbines are one of the innovative solutions in the field of offshore wind energy systems. Unlike traditional horizontal turbines, vertical turbines have a vertical axis of rotation. This allows them to work even with variable wind direction and intensity, which makes them more efficient in marine conditions. Floating platforms allow such turbines to be placed in open sea spaces where they can use strong winds away from the shore.

    In addition to wind, offshore platforms can also use wave energy. Wave and wind energy platforms combine technologies to collect energy from both wind and wave motion. This allows the most efficient use of renewable resources, ensuring stable and continuous generation of electricity. Such platforms are usually equipped with systems for collecting and converting energy from both waves and wind, which allows them to work efficiently even under various weather conditions.

    Floating power plants equipped with offshore wind turbines represent an innovative solution for the production of clean energy. These platforms are independent and mobile systems that can be placed in remote offshore areas with high wind speeds. They are able to provide energy to remote islands that do not have access to traditional sources of electricity. Floating power plants can also be used during emergencies or temporary power outages, providing a continuous supply of electricity.

    Two-bladed offshore wind turbines are another option for high-altitude wind energy technology. These turbines have two blades, which makes them compact and efficient. They can be installed at altitude, away from the earth's surface, where the wind speed is more stable and high. This design makes it possible to use even weak winds, which increases the potential of energy that can be obtained from wind turbines.

    An offshore wind farm combines all these technologies into a single complex capable of generating a significant amount of clean energy. It consists of several offshore wind turbines installed on platforms or on special structures that allow efficient collection of wind energy on the open sea surface. An offshore wind farm is capable of providing electricity to large territories and cities, reducing dependence on fossil fuels and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This leads to a reduction in the negative impact on the environment and contributes to the sustainable development of cities.

    Offshore wind turbines and platforms provide a number of advantages that make them attractive as a source of renewable energy. Firstly, offshore wind has a higher speed and constancy compared to land regions, which ensures stable electricity generation. Secondly, the placement of turbines in the sea avoids problems associated with the use of land, such as conflicts with landowners or restrictions on the use of space. In addition, offshore wind turbines can be installed at a considerable distance from the shore, which reduces the visual impact and noise effects of settlements.

    However, the introduction of offshore wind energy systems also involves some challenges. One of them is the complexity of installing and maintaining turbines and platforms on the high seas. It also requires the development and application of innovative materials and technologies to ensure the reliability and durability of systems in harsh marine conditions.

    In conclusion, offshore wind turbines and platforms represent a promising solution for generating clean energy and sustainable urban development. They can be effectively used to supply electricity to large areas, as well as to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and reduce environmental pollution. With further technology development and support from governments and the business sector, offshore wind energy systems will become an integral part of the future energy infrastructure, contributing to the sustainable development of cities and the creation of an environmentally friendly and energy-independent environment.
