About the European Cooperation

EU-funded project to define technical frameworks and standards for electricity transmission

The European Union wants to deploy 300 GW of offshore wind by 2050 to meet its climate targets and to reduce its dependence on fossil fuel. The most efficient way of transporting electricity from offshore wind is via multi-terminal high voltage direct current (HVDC) grids. Under the EU’s “Horizon Europe” funding scheme the InterOPERA project will define future interoperability standards for electricity grids.

Esbjerg Declaration

The Esbjerg Declaration is an initiative of North Sea littoral states to accelerate the expansion of wind energy in the North Sea and to interconnect offshore grids in the future.

Connection

We plan to interconnect offshore wind clusters all over Europe to complete the European offshore grid.​

Efficiency

Our goal is to interlink new wind production sites - secure and cost efficiently.​

Setting norms​

We want to standardize the interfaces of future offshore connection technologies.​

We firmly believe in the European Unions Green Deal and it’s strive for climate neutrality by 2050. Sustainable and reliable integration of offshore energy is an existential part of this goal. Ofcourse we are also working to reduce the direct environmental impact of grid integration.

We are certain: now is the best time to get started with the next phase of offshore integration.

Our European Responsibility

Our partners

Our wish is to act as a catalyst for a future proof offshore grid. This requires a multinational effort at European level. Our vision is to develop a joint plan for connecting future offshore capacities to Europe’s transmission system. Following specific projects and implementation will be undertaken by TSO’s individually.

An open European collaboration

Eurobar wishes to bring together offshore TSO’s from all coasts and seas and is open for participation of additional TSO’s at any time. We want to exchange knowledge and perspectives among all participating associations, initiatives and companies to avoid redundant work – discussing key challenges and conclusive solutions for the realization of an interlinked European offshore system in the process.

Becoming off shore ready

We aim to design a collective, modular and flexible approach to evolve projects based on current regulation, like point-to-point connections interlinked in an European offshore grid – a “busbar-like system”. By abiding to national and international planning processes, TSO’s are supposed to be able to autonomously plan and build these as soon as need arises.
