Offshore wind is taking our world by storm

You may not have noticed, but offshore wind is taking our world by storm. Since offshore wind turbines are transported by ships and barges, they easily reduce logistical challenges that land-based turbines encounter, such as narrow roadways or tunnels. This allows offshore wind developers to build larger turbines capable of producing more electricity. But what’s… Read More
