The objective of this project was to improve the understanding of the nature and distribution of Europe's offshore wind resource. In particular the project team set out to improve upon previous estimates of the European offshore wind energy resource, to consider a number of additional factors that could affect its exploitation on a commercial basis and to present the information in a straightforward, yet useful format.

The project has produced state-of-the-art estimates of the extent and distribution of Europe's offshore wind energy resources not only in the coastal zone - the current focus of the offshore wind industry's attention - but also throughout the region's far offshore areas, where there is potential for wind energy to be exploited in the longer-term. The POWER project�s techniques should enable the wind energy industry to exploit the offshore wind energy resource with greater confidence.
