A Growing Market

The offshore wind farm sector has grown significantly in recent years, driven by advances in technology, government policies, and declining costs.

Global offshore wind capacity reached 29.1 GW in 2019, up from just 3.5 GW in 2010 and in Europe, offshore wind power capacity is expected to reach 450 GW by 2050, with major growth expected in markets such as the UK, Germany and the Netherlands.

Mapping and geographic information systems (GIS) are important aspects of the sector and, as such, play an essential role for developers, researchers and consultants involved in offshore, guiding decisions from site selection to asset management.

Imagine what you could do for your organisation with access to comprehensive geographic information system (GIS) data and mapping.

How we can help

4C Offshore has developed ForeSEE, a comprehensive suite of reports, databases and online tools.

ForeSEE allows us to create sector-specific subscriptions to help people gather intelligence to inform decisions, for example, our Offshore Transmissions & Cables Intelligence subscription.

For over ten years, 4C Offshore has led the way to provide organisations like yours, with a competitive edge and identified opportunities. We have also forecasted supply capacity and project demand, enabling users to invest wisely today, in tomorrow’s revenue streams.

Sector subscriptions are fuelled by wide-reaching data and insights to help organisations make informed decisions.

4C Offshore’s GIS Spatial Data subscription can help with:

  • Site selection
    • Identify suitable locations for renewable energy projects. By analysing data on factors like wind speeds, and terrain, businesses can determine which sites are most suitable for their projects.
  • Resource assessment
    • Assess the availability and potential of renewable resources in a given area. For example, use mapping data to determine the solar irradiance or wind speed at a specific location, which can help them estimate the energy output of a proposed project.
  • Project planning and design
    • GIS data can aid in the planning and design of renewable energy projects. By creating 3D models of a site and incorporating data on factors such as land use, soil type and topography, businesses can optimise the design and placement of renewable energy infrastructure.
  • Environmental impact assessment
    • GIS data can help businesses evaluate the potential environmental impact of their projects including factors such as wildlife habitats, protected areas and sensitive ecosystems.
