Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


The WindSpeed project aims to develop a roadmap defining a realistic target and a development pathway up to 2030 for offshore wind energy in the Central and Southern North Sea. To achieve this roadmap spatial data on where these activities occur and if possible with what intensity is needed. This data can then be used as building material to feed into the DSS or Decision Support System that is also part of the project plan. This GIS-based tool will show a spatial representation of offshore wind energy potential in relation to non-wind sea functions and environmental aspects. The tool will also facilitate the quantification of trade-offs between electricity generation costs from offshore wind and constraints due to non-wind sea functions and nature conservation.
