Getting from ambitions to action by realising 120 GW of offshore wind energy by 2030

Nine countries in the North Sea region and the European Commission (North Seas Energy Cooperation) want to realise 120 gigawatts (GW) of offshore wind energy by 2030.  The Netherlands is playing a crucial role in realising all those extra gigawatts of new offshore wind farms with 21 GW in 2030. The ambitious objective creates a peak in activities in ports around the North Sea. Therefore Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) commissioned a study to Royal Haskoning DNV on how the ports should develop to be ready for the expected peak.

The findings of this study were presented at Offshore Energy 2023 and RVO asked the Maritime Sisters to moderate a vivid discussion about the outcomes, impact and required actions. Together with RVO, Royal Haskoning DHV, North Sea Port, European Commission, European Investment Bank (EIB), Netherlands Wind Energy Association (NWEA), Van Oord and Ministery of Economic Affairs & Climate Maritime Sisters spoke on how to get from ambition to collaborative action. A very positive development is that one of the recommendations for collective tender planning is being implemented as we speak!

Let’s continue this constructive approach towards affordable, sustainable and secure renewable energy from the North Seas as ‘Europe’s green power plant’. With a capacity of more than 300 GW renewable energy in 2050. In cooperation and in balance with other users and ecological values of the North Sea.
