Abstract: 

According to the Global Wind Report of the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) in 2017, global wind power electricity generation capacity has been dramatically developing from 23,900 MW in 2001 to 486,790 MW in 2016. However, wind power generation in South Korea accounts for only 0.2 % of total power generation. Nonetheless, electricity production by wind power generation is soon expected to reach the grid parity where the cost of generating electricity by wind power is equal to the cost of fossil fuels such as oil. In this study, we analyzed the criteria of vessel traffic and fishing activities of major offshore wind farms in Europe where 88 % of the offshore wind power facilities are located. Finally, we suggest critical considerations based on the analysis.
