It identifies the areas that could host offshore wind turbines with depths smaller than 50 m and average wind speeds greater than 8 m/s. The study revealed a capacity of 98 GW of untapped offshore wind power potential in eastern Africa, a supply that would be sufficient to meet almost 60% of today's energy demand of the whole African continent. The study proposes a politics- and geography-based path to be followed for the offshore wind energy development that can assist with future energy policy and planning, which could have an impact in the African population.
