WindEurope’s feedback on the suggested EC Companion Guide for technical requirements for connections to offshore HVDC grids in the North Sea
This document presents WindEurope’s view on the Companion Guide, a non-binding document that has been suggested as the main deliverable of the ongoing EC study on “Technical requirements for connections to offshore HVDC grids in the North Sea”, deployed by Tractebel. The goal of this study is to propose a voluntary set of technical guidelines – presented in the Companion Guide – for offshore hybrid projects by identifying the need for harmonization on the national implementation of the EU Network Codes between the various Member States and potential technical barriers not covered by the existing Network Codes, and by implementing/clarifying the relevant regulation when this would be applied for offshore hybrid projects.
