Offshore wind for future success

As costs for offshore wind have fallen dramatically in recent years and full load hours are increasing with larger turbines, we believe that offshore wind can play a key role in ensuring a reliable and cost-effective Swedish energy system in the future. Experience from other countries shows us that grid development and an expansion of renewable energy can work together to create cost-effective solutions. Today, we can still benefit from existing projects and knowledge, but key prerequisites are clear cost-allocations for grid connections and accountability. What other prerequisites are needed in order to increase competitiveness and allow Swedish offshore wind power to reach its full potential?
