Policy brief #6 – From NOwnership to Ownership: How to Define and Promote Local and Inclusive Citizen Ownership in Renewable Energy Projects

This policy brief explores the option of local and inclusive citizen ownership to help accelerate the energy transition. Such ownership promotes: local acceptance, cost-effectiveness and capital contribution to investments. How this type of ownership could be promoted is discussed in this brief.

Policy brief #4 – Synergies between hydrogen and offshore wind – challenges and opportunities in the North Sea Region

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.

Policy brief #3 – Opportunities and barriers to interconnector expansion in the North Sea Region

This informational policy brief explores the main opportunities and barriers to interconnector expansion in the North Sea region. This is in light of Europe’s drive to increase interconnection between national electricity grids to support decarbonising the power system.

Policy brief #2 – Opportunities for an efficient future North Sea energy system – the case of the Netherlands

Reaching the national renewable energy and carbon emission targets set for 2030 and 2050 requires coordinated engagement among different parties involved in the use of the offshore space, working under a common vision. This can be facilitated by providing clear legal and practical guidelines for developing and implementing integrated offshore renewable energy projects. This policy brief presents the context, opportunities, and constraints that characterize the road towards an integrated offshore energy system.

Workshop Stavanger

From 11-14 May the ENSYSTRA project hosted its first online Workshop, organised by University of Stavanger. The topic of this Workshop was ‘Future Sustainable Energy Systems: Technology and Innovation for Renewable and Low Carbon Energy’. The week was packed with interesting presentations but also workshops concerning fundraising and grant writing, career development, creativity and innovation. Guest speakers shared their insight on topics such as Hydropower and energy system modelling in government, the role of hydropower in the green transition, blue hydrogen, offshore wind and hydropower in sustainable utilization.

Next to that, the ESRs had time to update each other on the progress of their research and make a first draft for […]
