New study says smaller nearshore wind farms are more cost-effective than a single large offshore facility

Coastal communities will benefit more from near shore wind farms compared with offshore facilities located over 20 km from shore, a new Danish study has found. The study has produced several scenarios based on publicly available data.,,  The study highlights that the shorter distance to the coast and lower water depth make it cheaper to establish nearshore wind farms. Other savings come from reduced cabling and electrical infrastructure costs when locating wind farms close to shore and closer to the onshore power grid. >click to read< 14:10
