Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What's truly stupid about the questioning of feed-in support for off-shore is why we are having the debate now. As things stand, the 10 GW target for 2020 will probably be missed by a large margin due to the start-up difficulties, thus it's too early to speculate on a significant price effect (of any kind) due to the high off-shore wind feed-in rates. We should have this debate in 2018 or so (when the degression of those feed-in rates for new installations is currently set to kick in), when we can see whether serious cost reduction potentials became visible.
