    As the offshore wind power sector moves to deeper waters, new foundation concepts are being developed. The European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) has created a task force under its Offshore Wind Industry Group, to look specifically at the issues revolving around the development of deep offshore and new foundation concepts. Within this paper a comprehensive presentation of state-of-the-art concepts and their maturity is provided. In addition the main technical, economic and political challenges are discussed and recommendations are provided to accommodate the sustainable development of the deep offshore wind sector in Europe.
