3 Business Models and Value Assesment for offshore energy hubs

Business Models and Value Assesment for offshore energy hubs

Designs innovative business models supporting new value chains to give input to decision making on offshore energy hubs. It will generate insights on the public value and impacts on energy flows and price dynamics of an integrated offshore energy system in the North Sea. The impact will be assessed by simulating different system configurations for the offshore hubs. The energy system model will be chosen by the consortium in the first phase of the program.  

Neptune Energy's Q13a-A platform is the first offshore green hydrogen pilot in the world

Interaction with other work packages

  • The work package will also design innovative business models that help stakeholders to take action and decisions and share risk for the realization of offshore system development as part of hub realization.
  • It includes detailed examples of business cases per value chain (e.g. Understanding the business case for stakeholders in the value chain from wind via hydrogen to steel making). 
  • This work package will deliver onshore industry cluster characterization in the Netherlands on demand, production, conversion and storage of the relevant energy commodities (h2, electricity, natural gas and co2) to make a better connect between onshore and offshore energy transition and connect with cluster energy strategies. Therefore NSE works actively together with the SINERGY consortium, which seeks to align onshore and offshore demand and supply. The SINERGY consortium is an initiative coordinated by the Tekenkamer van de Industrie, aimed to align off-shore developments and on-shore transition pathways in support of system integration for the Dutch energy systemWorkshops
