Short summary
In this paper, a new energy system for the conversion of far-offshore wind energy into methanol is proposed, and the cost of energy is estimated. Results show that this system could produce approximately 70 000 t of methanol per annum at a cost comparable to that of methanol produced by offshore wind farms in the long term.
