Benchmarking offshore wind incentives in Northern Europe



A comparison of benefit and costs of offshore wind support mechanisms

For the first time in a coherent cross-country analysis, 3E assessed the benefits to developers and costs for society of offshore wind support systems in 6 countries bordering the North Sea, on behalf of the Belgian Offshore Platform.

Conclusions reveal that net support costs are lower than average in Belgium and in Germany and Denmark even though grid connection costs are borne directly by end consumers in both these countries.
