The new TEN-E regulation requires the Member States, the European Commission, and TSOs to collaborate on the development of Offshore Network Development Plans. In this framework, ENTSO-E and the European Commission have jointly elaborated this brief guidance document, aiming to support the Member States in delivering the input information needed by ENTSO-E for the infrastructure planning task.
For each sea basin, the information needed includes:
- Offshore RES capacities in the relevant time horizons (2030, 2040, 2050).
- Locations dedicated to hosting this offshore generation and transmission infrastructure.
