Delivering Offshore Electricity to the EU: spatial planning for offshore renewable energies and electricity grid infrastructures in an integrated EU Maritime Policy (SEANERGY 2020)
European Technology Platform on Wind Energy (ETIPWind) has been established to provide wind community representation, communication, coordination and collaboration to national and European policy makers on research and innovation in wind energy.
The focuses of the projects were maritime spatial planning (MSP) and the removal of obstacles that obstruct the deployment of offshore renewable power generation. The project particularly addressed offshore renewable energy and related grid infrastructure. It provided policy recommendations for a more coordinated approach of the MSP and for a larger deployment of offshore renewable (wind, wave, tidal).
Running time: May 2010 – June 2012
