Offshore wind investment hit an all-time high in 2019, thanks to a string of billion-dollar deals off the coasts of mainland China and Taiwan, and in British, French and Dutch waters, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

This late surge in offshore wind financing pushed offshore capacity investment to $29.9 billion, up 19 percent on 2018 and $2 billion more than during the previous record year in 2016.

Total clean energy investment – including money going into research and development, specialist companies via public market share issues, and venture capital and private equity deals – reached $363.3 billion in 2019, up slightly on the previous year’s $362.5 billion.
