Life cycle assessment of an offshore grid interconnecting wind farms and customers across the North Sea

Abstract

This study aims to contribute to an improved understanding of the environmental implications of offshore power grid and wind power development pathways. To achieve this aim, we present two assessments. First, we investigate the impacts of a North Sea power grid enabling enhanced trade and integration of offshore wind power. Second, we assess the benefit of the North Sea grid and wind power through a comparison of scenarios for power generation in affected countries. © Springer, Part of Springer Science+Business Media
