The first offshore wind project was installed off the coast of Denmark in 1991. Since that time, commercial-scale offshore wind facilities have been operating in shallow waters around the world, mostly in Europe. Wind power projects will continue to take shape offshore the United States. At the same time, the development of newer turbine and foundation technologies will allow wind power projects to be built in deeper waters further offshore, and the adaptation of standards and guidelines for national regulation will remain important for a national offshore wind energy resource and design database.
