GROW consortium aims for 7 eurocent/kWh by 2030
During the Winddagen conference in Rotterdam, a consortium of leading Dutch companies and research institutes will present a joint plan for research, development and demonstration in offshore wind to the Minister of Economic Affairs. The mission of the GROW consortium is to bring the cost of offshore wind further down to seven eurocents per kWh by 2030.
GROW, or "Growth through Research, development & demonstration in Offshore Wind", will contribute to the Netherlands' goals for a renewable and independent energy supply. Over the next five years, GROW will introduce new innovations to the market. GROW will thus further strengthen the Dutch offshore wind sector, leading to significant growth in knowledge-intensive employment. The consortium will spend at least EUR 100 m on research, development and demonstration projects in the next 5 years.

Dutch ambitions for offshore wind energy
By the year 2020, the Dutch government aims to have installed 6,000 MW of offshore wind energy capacity in the Netherlands to reach its renewable energy goals. Due to limitations such as shipping routes, oil and gas platforms, visual impact and ecology, only approximately 2,000-3,000 MW of the total of 6,000 MW can be installed within a 50-60 km distance from the shore. The remaining capacity will have to be installed
Windmolens in de mist
Het was zo’n mooi plan: met ongeveer zestig studenten en medewerkers op een boot naar het windmolenpark voor de kust van Noordwijk, waar het merendeel van de energie op de campus wordt opgewekt. Maar het liep anders.

Windenergie: kosten verder omlaag
Ondanks de recente groei is er nog steeds veel ruimte voor kostenreductie in windenergie. Dat stelt prof.dr. Simon Watson in zijn intreerede aan de TU Delft op vrijdag 2 maart.
