ABOUT THIS EVENT
With the signing of the Esjberg declaration in May 2022 by Belgium, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands collaboration in the North Sea has become reality. A joint target has been set to deliver at least 65 GW offshore wind power by 2030 and to increase capacity to at least 150 GW by 2050. With this great ambition they will be able to deliver half of the green offshore wind power required by the EU in 2050 in order to reach the objective of climate neutrality.
Hybrid Event CIGRE Germany - Energy Security
Offshore Wind from the North Sea becomes increasingly important in the future generation mix of the Energy Transition for central and northwest Europe. There are several advantages of Offshore Wind from the North Sea such as the much higher yield due to more constant production or higher full load hours compared with onshore wind generation. New offshore networks provide potential connections to multiple electricity markets of the North Sea coastal countries. Will this be sufficient to grant in future the same level of Energy Security as we enjoy today with still high content of fossil generation, in the context of the EU targets to decarbonize the electricity sector?
In a series of three Cigre events in North Sea coastal countries we take a closer look at the North Sea as future Powerhouse for Europe. In this last event we will focus on the contribution and challenges of Energy Security. Can the significant higher yield and potential international multiterminal connection ensure same level of resilience in security of supply as today?
We are looking forward on October 10th 2023 to experienced speaker and program regarding this topic. Join us either in person at Stuttgart or online.
