A North Sea Energy Atlas has been developed to create an overview of the data on current and future offshore energy in the North Sea Area. This includes creating an inventory of current energy flows from hydrocarbon production and wind energy, and how these are transported to the onshore energy system. Also potential future grids for hydrogen and CO2 are explored. The result is an interactive online North Sea Energy Atlas that brings you new perspectives regarding our current and future offshore energy system.
The intended use of this North Sea Energy Atlas is to provide users with quick insights regarding the offshore energy system. The Atlas and data it contains on future developments (e.g. offshore wind deployment) are not intended to be used as basis for detailed spatial planning and investment decisions. The scope and focus of this version of the Atlas is the Dutch Continental Shelf (DCS). Note that this is a BETA version of the North Sea Energy Atlas. The detailed descriptions of items shown on the maps are not all verified and updated.
