Discussion paper – Topical Agenda

The North Sea Wind Power Hub (NSWPH) consortium developed this Topical Agenda to support policy and regulatory developments supporting and accelerating offshore wind deployment in the North Sea. The Topical Agenda serves as a structured discussion that identifies and explores key policies, regulatory and market issues that must be tackled in order to support the large-scale deployment of offshore wind. Five key topic areas are addressed: Main Principles, Scope, Cost & Benefit, Investment Framework and Legal Framework.

With this overall objective, the NSWPH consortium stands ready to support policy makers in the deployment of offshore wind in the North Sea.

Given the international nature of large-scale offshore infrastructure developments and their long timelines for development, there is an need for close collaboration among developers, TSOs, policy makers and energy regulators. This requires collaboration and engagement to begin now. The NSWPH is willing to support this by sharing expertise and knowledge required to tackle key topics.
