The objective of this research is to execute a geographically explicit land use, land consumption, land reserves and transport analysis and to develop scenarios using a combination of simulation and static models for the North Sea region based on the best suitable data as well as on legislation and plans for future space use. The used analyses and models identify the suitability of areas for decentralised energy supply (wind power, electric charge sta0ons, etc.), scenarios for and efficient transport network and economic potentials and implementa0on poten0als for key energy technologies taking into account competing spatial claims.
