Designated Wind Energy Area HK-NW Offshore Wind Farm

09 Nov 2021: The latest draft North Sea 2022 – 2027 Programme (PNZ), made available in November, designates 10.7 GW of offshore wind areas in order to meet increased 2030 offshore wind targets. Unused wind energy areas designated in the 2016 PNZ have been reconfirmed for development before 2030 and eight new search areas identified in the draft PNZ in March have been redefined. According to the PNZ, Hollandse Kust (southwest) and Hollandse Kust (northwest) are very unfavourable as wind energy areas in relation to fishing, nature and shipping. These will not be used for offshore wind development. The draft is available for inspection from Tuesday 9 November 2021 to Monday 20 December. The North Sea 2022-2027 Programme will be partially revised after its final adoption in March 2022 to designate 17 GW wind energy areas for development post-2030.
