Scaling up offshore wind energy in Europe

Online public event with Morten Petersen, Member of the European Parliament, Professors Catherine Banet and Bert Willems and representatives from national regulators and industry players.

On 19 November 2020, the European Commission adopted an Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Strategy, in line with the objective of the European Green ;The Strategy recognises the essential role of offshore wind, as well as new technologies such as floating solartidal and wave energy in the energy transition. However, despite the rapid market and technological developments, the EU will not be able to meet its climate commitments and industrial ambitions, unless a new and implemented legal and regulatory framework is in place.

Feeding into the current discussion on the reform of the Electricity Market Design and the Wind Power Package, this upcoming CERRE report, by Prof. Catherine Banet and Prof. Bert Willems, will analyse and formulate recommendations on how to scale up Europe’s offshore wind sector, with regards to planning, permitting and cross border market ;Amongst others, it will discuss the following questions:

  • How can the development of offshore wind projects become part of an integrated plan for the Blue Economy?
  • How can permitting procedures for offshore wind generation and related infrastructures be simplified and shortend at Member State level?
  • How can EU intervention spur the economic development of large, cross-border projects and related infrastructrures?
  • What is the impact of different market organisation structures on the profitability for the wind park producer and the cost for end-users ?
  • How can we ensure co-existence between offshore activities, biodiversity protection and mutual/ local benefits for the developments of offshore wind projects?

To get answers to these questions, join us online on 11 October, from 2:30pm CET, for a stimulating discussion with Morten Petersen, Member of the European Parliament, Catherine Banet and Bert Willems, representatives from national regulators, and industry players.
