Title: IEA Wind TCP Task 26: Offshore Wind Energy International Comparative Analysis

Abstract

Task 26 'Cost of Energy' has been running within the International Energy Agency (IEA) Wind Technology Collaboration Programme since 2009. In 2015, task participants produced IEA Wind Task 26: Offshore Wind Farm Baseline Documentation (Smart et al. 2016), published in 2016 to document the technical and cost assumptions and levelized cost of energy (LCOE) results for a generic, geographically nonspecific, baseline offshore wind farm being commissioned in 2012-2014. This report has been prepared to document changes to offshore wind costs and technology since the baseline and as an analysis of the drivers of LCOE between countries. This report examines the physical site characteristics, technology choices, and regulatory context driving LCOE in key countries for offshore wind farms being commissioned in 2017-2018.
