System integration on the North Sea

North Sea Energy Programme
A key element of our programme is an integrated approach to the offshore energy portfolio. NSE identifies and assesses opportunities for synergies between multiple low-carbon energy developments offshore: offshore wind, solar & marine energy, hydrogen developments, carbon capture transport & storage, and natural gas while strengthening the carrying capacity of our economy, society and nature and identify human capital aspects. The programma aimd to provide fact based information that will generate insights for informed decision making by industry and policy makers. Leading to pilots, demonstration and early commercial projects in the short term.
Earlier results of the NSE program show that without (1) the deployment of offshore wind and (2) the implementation of carbon capture and storage, the transition towards a sustainable energy system will be difficult and costly to achieve. Smart connections and benefitting from synergies will reduce carbon emissions, reduce costs, help us to use offshore space effectively and accelerate the energy transition. Cooperation and coordination will enable us to seize opportunities and put the North Sea on the map as a pioneering region for the European energy transition.
NSE is a pre-competitive Shared Innovation Program within the TKI New Gas.
