Trends in ocean energy
With 70% of the planet covered in water, ocean energy
is an untapped sustainable energy resource that will
benefit future generations, but the levellized cost of
energy (LCOE) is still at 4–5 times the cost of
traditional energy.
• SKF is actively involved in the emerging wave and
tidal energy sectors with our 5 product platforms
• Major OEMs are now taking equity stakes in most
advanced technology developers

Trends in wind energy
Commercial trends
Technology trends
•
•
New technology in development
•
Improved requirements for
controlled processes and
establishment of wind industry
standards
Onshore wind energy is increasingly
cost-competitive in comparison with
conventional energy
•
Offshore wind energy is coming back
on track
•
Expansion from traditional markets
to new emerging markets
•
Longer life cycles with turbine
upgrades
•
Increasing and more competitive

Biggest wind energy market – China
Steady growth, and operations and
maintenance expansion
•
•
•
•
•
The Chinese global wind market,
representing over 40% of the global wind
market, is starting to mature with a more
moderate and steady growth
development
A maturing market will lead to fewer but
stronger turbine manufacturers
Large potential for the aftermarket due to
increasing numbers of wind turbines
coming out of warranty over the coming
years
Increasing environmental concerns
support investments in wind energy and
other renewables in the coming years
SKF is well-positioned at leading wind
turbine and gearbox customers in China
with local engineering team and local
manufacturing
