Offshore renewable energy has an immense potential in Europe: over 250GW of offshore wind capacity are expected to be installed by 2050. If successfully deployed, offshore renewable energy will play a crucial role in the decarbonisation of the European Union’s energy systems, increasing security of supply, diversifying energy sources, and contributing to the 2030 European Union’s and national climate and energy targets, as well as to the 2050 climate neutrality commitment. The Offshore Renewable Energy Strategy should identify key actions aiming at integrating offshore renewable energy generation capacity in the energy system in a cost-efficient way while respecting high levels of environmental protection, public involvement and cooperation among Member States.
