The North Sea Wind Power Hub (NSWPH) Programme consortium, supported by Guidehouse and consisting of TenneT, Energinet, and Gasunie, aims to facilitate the development of the world’s first offshore energy hub, integrating offshore wind connection and interconnections between countries using green hydrogen.
NSWPH recently published a topical agenda aimed at accelerating offshore wind deployment in the North Sea. The topical agenda identifies key policy topics that must be addressed to ultimately arrive at a full enabling framework that can provide necessary investment certainty to the project stakeholders. These include:
Guidehouse has actively supported NSWPH developments since 2017 and was awarded the opportunity to provide assistance in structured discussions with policymakers to realize the North Sea Wind Power Hub in 2020. Joint development of the topical agenda and the resulting discussion papers are the core elements of this engagement.
