The ECN part of TNO, KNMI (the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute), and Whiffle, a Delft University of Technology spin-off, are releasing the new Dutch Offshore Wind Atlas on Thursday, 17 January. The Dutch Offshore Wind Atlas (DOWA) is said to include an unprecedented level of detail where the wind is mapped up-to 600m in height and […]
When it comes to emerging offshore wind markets, Taiwan, India and the U.S. have been in the spotlight over the last few years and especially in 2018. Nevertheless, a few new areas made the offshore wind map over the last year, beyond those already well known and ready for takeoff. Offshore wind is not only expanding as new markets emerge globally, but also as the countries with existing offshore wind farms and those under development already eye earmarking further areas where offshore wind turbines could be installed.
BLIX Consultancy and Pondera Consult have carried out a study on the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) of future offshore wind farm sites in the Netherlands.
