Abstract:
The POWER project unites North Sea regions with an interest in supporting and realising the economic and technological potentials of offshore wind energy. The project assesses environmental and planning as well as acceptance issues of offshore wind farms, supports the development of a reliable supply chain for the sector, and elaborates skills development measures. 37 organisations take part, with representatives from Germany, the UK, Denmark, the Netherlands and Belgium. Transnational co-operation between these regions is creating a North Sea competence network for offshore wind energy.

All partner regions face similar problems and opportunities in the sector. A strength of the partnership is the combination of regional expertise in onshore wind energy and in offshore oil and gas industries, which makes exchange of experience and best practise particularly beneficial.
