Bright future predicted for offshore wind sector

A recently published report out by the OECD looks at the ocean economy in 2030. Among the biggest winners in terms of new job creation is anticipated to be the offshore wind sector.

The report also warns that regulation and governance will struggle to keep up with changes in world trade.

“The world is increasingly multipolar and is experiencing growing difficulty in forging international consensus on global and regional issues key to the ocean environment and ocean industries,” the report noted.
