EU Workshop - Offshore energy potential in the Atlantic Ocean

The consortium has been contracted by the European Commission, Directorate General for Energy, to conduct a study to analyse the technical potential of offshore energy generation in the continental European parts of the Atlantic Ocean and the Republic of Ireland (topography, wind and wave availability, most suitable locations), and to look at the need and potential to develop a meshed offshore grid in different parts of the Northern Atlantic Ocean, helping the Member States of the region to increase renewable power generation and meet their decarbonisation objectives in a more cost-effective way.

The methodology and preliminary results will be presented at a workshop where participants will be able to discuss the first outcomes of the study about: selection of future siting areas, grid deployment and framework for the deployment of offshore renewable energies.
