Dive into …. Energy transition on the North Sea! 

A series of webinars about the road(map) towards an integrated offshore energy system.

The North Sea region is set to take on the role of ‘Europe’s green power plant’. In the coming decades new energy concepts will be developed while strengthening the carrying capacity of our economy, society and nature and human capital aspects. The future energy system requires the massive roll out of offshore wind capacity, combined with emerging technologies for offshore solar, offshore hydrogen developments (incl production, transport and storage) and CCS, as well as the orderly phase-out of natural gas exploration and production. Our recently recorded webinar series highlights the main results of the North Sea Energy Program research focussing on the challenges of offshore system integration and the benefits of an integrated and coordinated approach for the North Sea. In five episodes in the style of a 30 minute tv talk show, hosts Rene Peters, Marcel Hoenderdos and George Wurpel discuss with energy experts the development of concepts for offshore energy system integration. In an informative set up they highlight challenges and opportunities to unlock the low-carbon energy potential of the North Sea with optimal value for society and nature.

Episode 1: NSE Program and roadmap In episode 1, NSE energy experts Rene Peters and Joris Koornneef elaborate on the progress of the North Sea Energy program. They highlight the steps towards a roadmap for offshore system integration as input for decisions in the near future about the energy system in the longer term. The webinar is hosted by George Wurpel
