17 Dec 2021: The BSH published an update to the Area Development Plan (FEP) in late 2021 to reflect the revised offshore wind targets for 30 GW by 2030 and 40 GW by 2035 and 70 GW by 2045. The FEP identifies priority and reservation areas for offshore wind energy for up to 43 GW, increasing the total identified potential to 57.5 GW. This is sufficient to meet 30 GW by 2030 and 40 GW by 2035. In order to achieve the expansion target of 70 GW by 2045 additional areas must be identified. N-12.1 (1GW) and N-12.1 (1GW) will connect via NOR-12-1 (2 GW) transmission system. The FEP does not yet include specific tendering and commissioning years. There is uncertainty with regard to the acceleration potential of the network connections. The TSOs request immediate confirmation so investigations and planning for converters and transmission routes experience minimal disruption. The Network Development Plan 2037/45 (2023) also in progress. Scenario framework was published early 2022. Following consultation, a further draft FEP is expected in mid-2022.
