Résumé : In various embodiments, an offshore electrical energy generator is disclosed. The generator includes a buoy configured to float on a body of water. A wind turbine is mounted to the buoy. An air storage tank is configured for submersion. An air compressor is stowed within the buoy and coupled to the wind turbine and configured to charge the air storage tank in response to receiving wind energy collected by the wind turbine. An expansion turbine is stowed within the buoy and is configured to receive compressed air stored within the air storage tank and to decompress the compressed air to generate electrical energy.
