Offshore wind farms in combination with meshed offshore grids and cross-border interconnectors, powered by appropriate regulatory frameworks, can largely contribute to energy security in the European Union.
The main driver behind the forecast that wind energy will become the largest power source in the European Union well before 2030 is the EU's decision to raise the 2030 renewable energy target to 32%, which has come as a result of the industry and government's conclusions that the 27% target set in 2016 is not enough, given the progress made within the sector.
As reported recently, the upcoming offshore wind tender in the Netherlands will also have a zero-subsidy round, just like the one before it. According to Hans Timmers, Chairman of the Netherlands Wind Energy Association (NWEA), the level of the electricity price, growing market and stable demand and supply make up the grounds for holding a subsidy-free tender.
