PO097: «Realistic» floating wind costs

Rachel Spiegel, Senior Consultant, Renewables Northern Europe, DNV


Norway recently held the Utsira Nord licensing round for floating wind, where three 500MW lease areas with a desired Commercial Operation Date (COD) in 2030 are to be rewarded on qualitative criteria, otherwise called a "beauty contest". One criteria was cost - where the most cost-competitive projects would be rewarded most points. However, the government also specified that "realistic" costs will be awarded points, while "unrealistic" costs would be weighed negatively. Which leads to the question: how do you predict "realistic" floating wind costs in 2030? In this presentation, we will go through the major uncertainty factors and cost drivers for floating wind, and how "realism" can be applied to future floating projects.
