WHAT ?

Countries.pngThe   North Seas Countries’ Offshore Grid Initiative is a regional cooperation of  10 countries to facilitate the coordinated development of a possible offshore   electricity grid in the greater North Sea area. It seeks to maximize the   efficient and economic use of the renewable energy resources as well as   infrastructure investments. This cooperation, formalized by a Memorandum of   Understanding in 2010 (video) , following a Political Declaration in 2009, is supported by the   energy ministries, the regulators and transmission system operators of the 10   participating countries, and the European Commission.

 

 

 

 

 STRUCTURE ?

NSCOGI   is subdivided in Working Groups, concerning Grid configuration (Working Group 1), Regulatory issues (Working Group 2) and Planning and Permitting (Working Group 3) and steered by a Programme Board.
