A new regulatory framework is necessary to support offshore wind investors in developing wind farms and infrastructure ready for future meshed grids, according to WindEurope CEO Giles Dickson.
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.
Baltic InteGrid, a project exploring the potential of meshed offshore grids in the Baltic Sea region, is in focus of the second video in the Horizons series, co-produced by DOB-Academy and Offshore WIND with an aim to cover offshore wind topics in an easily digestible way.
Swedish company SCiBreak has joined the PROMOTioN consortium, which aims to develop and demonstrate diode rectifier offshore converters, HVDC grid protection system, and HVDC circuit breaker prototypes. PROMOTioN will also deliver a regulatory and financial framework, including an offshore grid deployment plan for the future offshore grid system in Europe.
Wind turbines, zero-subsidy projects and emerging markets remained to be the industry’s hottest topics in 2018. And while these were also the most covered matters on Offshore WIND, we also pressed the ‘Learn More’ button under topics that might deserve to be more widely discussed – and we hope to do so more in 2019 and the years to come.
Offshore wind farms in Germany generated 8.8 billion kWh of electricity in the first six months of 2017, a 47.5 percent increase compared to 5.9 billion kWh of electricity generated in the first half of 2016.
