Deliverable 7.1: Legal Framework and Legal Barriers to an Offshore HVDC Electricity Grid in the North Sea: Intermediate Report for Stakeholder Review

Nieuwenhout, C. T., Jul-2017, PROMOTioN. 173 p.

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

The present deliverable elaborates the current legal framework for offshore wind and grid development on international, European and national level. It is shown that often, the legal framework needs to be adapted in order to facilitate the development of a meshed offshore electricity grid. This is because offshore wind and offshore grid connections have developed strongly in the past few years while the legal framework lags behind. It becomes clear that while solutions have been sought in order to facilitate offshore wind, hybrid solutions that combine interconnection with offshore wind connection are often not yet supported by legal frameworks.
