Over the next four years, a consortium of nine parties will be investigating how to reduce the cost price of wind energy by developing an electricity infrastructure on the North Sea. The Dutch government awarded a € 2 million grant for this ‘plug socket’ project.

The consortium consists of Nuon/Vattenfall, Liandon, ECN, RoyalHaskoningDHV, Groningen Centre of Energy Law of the University of Groningen, Delft University of Technology, DC Offshore and Energy Solutions, and is coordinated by Grontmij. Between January 2013 and December 2017, the consortium will examine technical solutions, changes to international legislation and regulations and new financing models. At present, each country has its own, independent electricity infrastructure. By combining the individual infrastructures via a single cable route, a so-called Interconnector, expectations are that the cost price will drop down. The interconnector will make offshore wind flexibly and offshore wind farms can be directly connected to the international electricity grid.
