In the following years large amounts of offshore wind will be deployed in the North Sea region. Hydrogen emerges as an attractive option to provide flexibility and ease the integration of offshore wind and onshore energy systems. In this policy brief from the ENSYSTRA project we underline the economic, technical and stakeholder engagement barriers to the interaction between hydrogen and wind, and we provide recommendations addressed to policy makers in order to facilitate the transition towards a more integrated energy system.
