AIM - A coordinated roll-out of North Sea Wind Power Hubs facilitates an accelerated deployment of large scale offshore wind in the North Sea required to support realizing the Paris Agreements target in time, with minimum environmental impact and at the lowest cost for society (urgency & cost savings), while maintaining security of supply.
VISION -The North Sea Wind Power Hub Consortium initial study and test results are gathered in six concept papers. The goal of the concept papers is to inform North Sea stakeholders, and the general public, of the results the NSWPH has obtained working on the modular Hub-and-Spoke concept over the last two years. The six concept papers tell one story: from the challenge to meet the Paris Agreement, through the solution building on the modular Hub-and-Spoke concept, to the next steps required to meet the Paris Agreement timely and in a cost-effective manner.
The region’s most prominent energy, marine and environmental science research centres together with regional business, are partnering on a new collaborative bid which will further enhance East Anglia as a clean energy powerhouse for the UK and promote economic and environmental sustainability.
The Modular Offshore Grid (MOG), is Belgium company Elia's first power hub in the North Sea. The switching platform is 40 km off the coast. By the end of 2020, it will combine electricity generated by four offshore wind farms (Rentel, Seastar, Mermaid and Northwester 2) for onward transmission to the mainland. This is more efficient than transmitting the power via individual cables and improves security of supply.
