Offshore wind power in stormy seas
Wind power is a booming form of clean energy supply. From 2013 to 2015, installed capacity globally grew by 25%, and projections for 2030 nearly quadruple this capacity again.

As offshore wind is steady and does not occupy any valuable land resources, this is where we expect the vast majority of future developments to be. But storms at sea are more severe than on land. So how will wind farms fare in stormy seas?
