13 Jul 2022: The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate (EZK) published the new 'Roadmap for offshore wind energy 2030/2031'. The government is doubling its ambition for offshore wind energy to an installed capacity of approximately 21 GW by 2032. An additional 13.4 GW is included across areas, confirmed in the North Sea Program (2022-2027): Doordewind, Nederwiek, IJmuiden Ver, and Hollandse Kust (west), and Ten noorden van de Waddeneilanden. Already included in the original 2030 Roadmap, Tenders for Ijmuiden Ver III and IV will be tendered alongside sites I and II in 2023 as opposed to 2025. Tender discussions are in progress and further details are expected after the summer. The 700 MW Ten noorden van de waddereilander was due to be tendered in 2022, but more research is required before finalising the export cable route. The tender is now not expected until 2026. The Roadmap 2030+ adds an extra 10.7 GW and is split into two phases: Phase 1: 6 GW will be auctioned across IJmuiden Ver (north) and Neyderveek (south and north) wind energy areas and is expected to be completed in 2029 and 2030. Preparatory studies are already underway and synergies with the transmission route plans for the rest of the IJmuiden Ver wind energy zone, will enable time savings. Phase 2: 4.7 GW will be launched across Doordevind, Neyderveek (north) and Hollandse Kust (west) site 8 with operation in 2031. Lead times are longer for these sites due to the technical and ecological complexity of the cable routes. A final decision on the timelines for the additional tenders is expected to be made in 2024. It was decided not to use the plots in the Lagelander wind energy area in the 2030+ Roadmap as the area will still be used intensively for the production of gas and other uses up to 2030. The cabinet is taking longer to optimize the spatial planning of the Lagelander area. the Minister of Infrastructure and Water Management is investigating the possibilities of developing the area after 2030 as a 'multi-energy area' at sea, in which all activities , including offshore wind energy, can be combined with the aim of giving concrete form to system integration at sea. A letter from the new cabinet to the House of Representatives with a long-term vision for offshore wind towards 2040 and 2050 is expected later this year.
