Dr Madeleine Gibescu (Delft University of Technology) and Dr Olivia Woolley (GCEL) will respectively examine technical and legal difficulties that such a major undertaking could raise, and possible solutions to them. Dr Gibescu and Dr Woolley are both involved with a 4 year NWO-funded collaborative research project between TUD and GCEL on the development of transnational offshore electricity infrastructure.
