Description: 4POWER (Policy and Public Private Partnerships for Offshore Wind EneRgy) focuses on the role of regions in relation to Offshore wind energy (OSW). OSW has an enormous potential as a renewable energy source: EEA has calculated that it is economically feasible to generate over 60 to 70% of EU’s total energy demand by OSW in 2020. Regions are crucial for further OSW development, for practical reasons - electricity cables have to ‘land’ in coastal regions – and because of the political and strategic role they can play – e.g. creating Triple Helix linkages and stimulating business networks.While the technological advancement in OSW applications is considerable in industry, the uptake in terms of knowledge and effective policy in Europe’s regional and local governments is still patchy. There are clear front-runner regions on offshore wind energy implementation and regions with similar ambitions, but without the level of experience and/or knowledge to implement OSW in the short term.
