This report, conducted by EIT InnoEnergy and made by Enzen, shows that there is a solid basis for the Iberian region to become a technology and industry hub for floating offshore wind energy (FOWE), answering the following questions:
• What is floating offshore wind technology and its market?
• What is the opportunity for the Iberian region to become a hub for technology development and industrial leadership in the field of FOWE?
• How can the Iberian region seize this opportunity?

The promotion of a technological and industrial activity such as FOWE in the Iberian region will contribute not only to mitigate the climate change through the development of a clean power generation technology, but also will bring a positive macroeconomic impact in the region, derived from the creation of qualified jobs, exports and GDP growth.
