Market and Regulatory Aspects of Trans-National Offshore Electricity Networks for Wind Power Interconnection, in collaboration with TU Delft and funded by NWO Energy Transitions. The project will examine different scenarios for offshore electricity transmission (ranging from direct offshore wind farm to shore connections to a mutilateral transboundary offshore grid) from legal, technical and market perspectives. The project's objective is to provide policy-makers with insights into different possibilities for a North Sea offshore grid and their pros and cons. The research will also make recommendations on an optimal soultion for grid development both from legal and technical perspectives.
