The Front Cover

The European project ‘WindSpeed’ concluded that there is a need for a more collaborative and integrated approach and cross-border coordination, in order to fulfil the high offshore wind ambitions of the UK, Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway, Belgium and Germany. The maps on the front cover show that the coordinated approach (Grand Design, top right) is needed to ensure a successful roll-out of wind energy in the North Sea. On page 7 you find the complete article about it.
