Offshore wind energy will bring a key contribution to reaching the objectives of the EU Green Deal. The EC’s offshore RES strategy anticipates the integration of 300 GW offshore wind generation capacity into the energy system by 2050.
In a series of papers ENTSO-E assessed possible solutions to contribute to the realization of the EC’s Offshore strategy.
A key finding is that existing roles and regulatory frameworks are largely fit for purpose also for networks being extended to marine environments. Existing, well-functioning solutions applied onshore can be used offshore as well; this is valid for system development, market design and system operations.
