New proposed project to tackle MSP barriers
EWEA has proposed a new project proposal for EU funding that aims to formulate and to promote concrete policy recommendations on how best to remove maritime spatial planning (MSP) policy obstacles to the deployment of offshore renewable power generation. Effective MSP is essential for the offshore sector as it gives the industry a clear overview of future development.
The project proposal, entitled SEANERGY 2020, is focused on offshore renewable energy technologies and related grid infrastructure and provide policy recommendations on how to promote a more integrated and coordinated approach to maritime spatial planning and facilitate the implementation of the 20% Renewables Directive. If approved, the project is expected to run for 24 months.
