Over the last decade, the accelerated transition towards cleaner means of producing energy has been clearly prioritized by the European Union through large-scale planned deployment of wind farms in the North Sea. From a spatial planning perspective, this has not been a straight-forward process, due to substantial spatial conflicts with the traditional users of the sea, especially with fisheries and protected areas. This research will examine the suitable allocation of offshore space for wind farms in the North Sea area, while taking into account different options for the management of conflictual spatial claims, environmental impacts and the transnational cooperation for a common energy transition roadmap.
