    “Britain accounted for more than half of the new offshore wind power capacity built in Europe last year, as the sector broke installation records across the continent…The windfarms out in the North Sea and other shallow European waters are getting bigger in every sense. Soon turbines will almost be as large as the Shard, Europe’s tallest building…The average capacity of the 500-plus turbines connected to the grid was up by more than a fifth on the year before, with 17 windfarms on average a third more powerful…In total the UK installed 53% of the net 3.15GW of capacity installed across Europe…France deployed its first offshore turbine – a single, floating one – while the Norwegian oil firm Statoil established the world’s first floating windfarm in Scotland.
