  2. 2. European Offshore Wind Energy Standards, Permitting & Markets About the Report This report provides real data, fresh statistics and 100% independent analysis on helping you navigate offshore wind energy standards, permitting and markets. The report focuses on standards in Europe’s major offshore wind markets, including UK, Denmark, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Germany and France. Report benefits: I Market forecasts, key drivers, offshore wind regulations, targets AND practical guidance on applying for permits for: I An expert analysis of existing standards and regulations, including corporate perspectives on the future of standards in offshore wind energy I Read exclusive corporate insight from: By 2020, this report predicts that 110 GW of renewable energy in Europe will come from offshore wind. Reaching this capacity will, however, depend on a number of key factors including delivery of a European Supergrid, skills capacity, the strength of the supply chain and the availability of investment funds. But that is not all. Government policies will also pay an important role in securing investor interest and getting parks on line quickly. The report provides a detailed breakdown of the consenting procedure for offshore wind parks in Europe’s leading markets and charts the emerging regulation for this growing sector. It also addresses the challenges relating to harbour and connection infrastructure, the factors getting in the way of consents and the government incentives for offshore wind development. The report provides you with real data & detailed analysis on how to: I Navigate through the legislative jargon and emerging standards I Compare ease of entry to European markets, country-by-country I Find out which European markets present the greatest opportunity for your company I Understand which companies are the key offshore wind providers in each country, and what their strategic plans are I Obtain permits in each country, how the processes are changing, and what challenges your company will face Call to order on +44 (0) 207 375 7230 or toll free (USA & Canada) 1-800-814-3459 ext. 7230 G UK G Germany G Denmark G Netherlands G Norway G Sweden G France E.ON The Crown Estate German Wind Energy Association REpower

  4. 4. European Offshore Wind Energy Standards, Permitting & Markets Order at www.windenergyupdate.com/standards/ bb This brand new report was prepared by independent experts and incorporates strategies and data from over 30 offshore wind specialists. Here are a few of the primary data findings published in this report… 1)PERMITTING REFERENCE GUIDE A Few of the Report’s Key Findings UK I Incentive: UK Renewable Obligation I Prices: G Offshore wind: Two Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs) I Time to register/apply: 9-12 months to gain consent from the IPC, plus time to conduct consultations and carry out environmental impact assessment I Grid connection and responsibilities: Transmission System Operator (TSO) GERMANY I Incentive: Feed-in tariff I Prices: Initial tariff: 0.13 ¤/kWh plus bonus of 0.02 ¤/kWh for commissioning by end of 2015. No digression until 2015 I Time to register/apply: Two to three years, in some cases five I Grid connection and responsibilities: TSO DENMARK I Incentive: Feed-in tariff added to market prices, negotiated in a tender process I Prices: G Horns Rev II: 0.07 ¤/kWh (0.518 per kWh) G Rødsand 2: 0.08 ¤/kWh / DKK 0.629 per kWh G Anholt: 0.14 ¤/kWh (1.05 DKK/kWh) I Time to register/apply: One year (as an average). But it can take three or four years for a political decision to launch the tender process I Grid connections/responsibilities: The TSO (for projects run by a government tender) SWEDEN I Incentive: Tradable green certificates I Prices: N/A I Time to register/apply: Lillgrund: Seven years in territorial waters; Kriegers Flak and Stora Middelgrund two years in the EEZ I Grid connection responsibilities: Developer bb One of the key pressure points in the offshore consenting process is related to party politicisation of renewables. In all the countries analysed, policies for offshore wind are in the process of refinement or radical change. The result in many cases will be to speed up planning, but in others it creates uncertainty for project development.
  5. 5. 2)INCENTIVES Financial incentives for offshore wind are another crucial factor in getting offshore wind projects off the ground. Once again, a variety of incentive structures operate across Europe, including feed-in tariffs and quota systems, all to varying success.

  6. 6. European Offshore Wind Energy Standards, Permitting & Markets It is the features of an IEC standard that our survey respondents pick out as the most important elements of an offshore wind standard: namely international recognition (60%), harmonisation (55%) and wide industry participation (40%). FIGURE 11: THE MOST IMPORTANT ELEMENTS OF AN OFFSHORE WIND STANDARD 4)MARKET FORECAST Globally, the top five countries for all wind generated power are China, US, Spain, Germany and India, these five accounting for 75% of new capacity, but the majority of this is onshore.
