As part of the OPIN project, a masterclass will be organised by DMEC on 08/02/21 on “Multi-source energy parks: potential, risks and policy requirements”.
In this OPIN Masterclass we discuss the possibilities and challenges of combining multiple renewable energy generation technologies in one offshore park. This includes regulatory, technical and financial challenges. A particular focus will be on policy requirements and challenges.
The masterclass is based on early lessons learned during the European Scalable Offshore Renewable Energy Sources (EU-SCORES) project. EU-SCORES will pave the way for bankable multi-source offshore parks across Europe by 2025 and unlock the large-scale potential of wind, wave and offshore solar systems.”
The presenters will share information on the EU-SCORES project, the situation for Dutch and Belgian wind parks (i.e. steps for installing a wind park), infrastructure needs for installing other sources etc, permitting process for offshore renewables in Belgium based on the experience with the Belgian test site.
