In May 2022 the Norwegian government announced an ambition to award areas for 30 GW offshore wind power by 2040. This implies the development of an offshore power system with the same capacity as the existing Norwegian onshore power system. In other words, over the next decades, massive amounts of renewable energy from offshore wind resources need to be integrated into the Norwegian and European energy system. This should happen in a way that is economically sustainable while at the same time ensuring security of electricity supply throughout the transition.
