Offshore wind power is a valuable source of renewable energy that can help reduce carbon emissions. Technological advances are allowing higher capacity turbines to be installed in deeper water, but there is still much unknown about the effects on the environment. In a recent paper, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science researcher Helen Bailey and colleagues review the potential impacts of offshore wind developments on marine species and make recommendations for future monitoring and assessment as interest in offshore wind energy grows around the world.
Investing in renewable energy sources, particularly wind power, is key to address Vietnam’s growing electricity demand and to ensure the nation’s energy security as well as green growth strategy. The successful path towards this ultimate goal now depend on what policies and technologies Vietnam will take on to make the nation’s fully untapped potential a truly reality.

Can it reduce the cost of wind turbine operations and maintenance? The United Kingdom is leading in offshore wind. In 2014, four per cent of the UK electricity usage was generated by 22 wind farms. However, offshore wind is more expensive to generate than many alternative renewable sources and a target has been set of achieving a 30-40 per cent reduction in costs by 2023.
