Netherlands plans to almost double 2030 offshore wind targets

offshoreWIND.biz:

The Netherlands plans to develop additional 10.7 GW of offshore wind capacity by 2030 in order to meet the EU’s current goal of reducing CO2 emissions by 55 per cent by 2030 compared to the 1990 levels.

The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management has now issued the Additional Draft North Sea Programme 2022 – 2027 which increases the country’s offshore wind target from the current 11.5 GW to 22.2 GW of operating offshore wind capacity by 2030.

The Additional Draft North Sea Programme 2022 – 2027 designates wind farm zones in the North Sea in the context of the current climate targets for 2030 and the EU’s ambition to tighten them, with a view to reducing CO2 emissions to 55 per cent of 1990 levels by 2030. The Netherlands’ current CO2 reduction target is 49 per cent by 2030 compared to the 1990 levels.

The Additional Draft North Sea Programme 2022 – 2027 replaces chapter 9 of the Draft North Sea Programme 2022 – 2027, which was available for inspection from March to September 2021 as an appendix to the Draft National Water Programme 2022 – 2027.
