PROMOTioN Key Documents & Findings

Here you will find the key documents and findings in .pdf format as well as the videos of our Breakout Sessions as .zip files.

These documents were created throughout the course of PROMOTioN and contain high-level analysis of the data generated as well as recommendations based on those. More documents can be found under "Deliverables" in the "Results" section.

The objective of stakeholder interaction, as already outlined in detail in the previous intermediate stakeholder report “D7.7”, is to receive feedback on the intermediate and final results of PROMOTioN’s WP7.

The PROMOTioN programme (Progress on Meshed HVDC Offshore Transmission Networks) has advanced the HVDC technology required to design, build, operate and protect meshed HVDC transmission grids, namely HVDC grid and converter control systems, direct current circuit breakers (DCCBs), HVDC grid protection systems and HVDC Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS)1. Alongside this, recommendations have been developed for the legal & governance frameworks needed for a meshed offshore grid (MOG), the necessary economic and financial rules required to attract sufficient investment and fairly remunerate owners, operators and users of the grid, and the market and governmental actions necessary to facilitate an ordered roll-out.

This document, Deliverable 12.4 - Final Deployment Plan, brings together these findings and recommendations into a roadmap to 2050, describing the steps required to develop an offshore grid capable of integrating offshore wind farms and evacuating large quantities of wind energy to shore, as well as providing interconnection between countries bounding the North Seas, and providing onshore AC grid reinforcements by means of offshore DC connections2. The aim of this document is to translate these recommendations into practical and executable next steps for the European Commission and other stakeholders to overcome barriers and advance the deployment of a MOG.

This document is a supplement to the PROMOTioN project deliverable D12.4 Deployment Plan for future European Offshore Grids ("the Deployment Plan"). The PROMOTioN Deployment Plan is intended to give guidance to stakeholders in which choices are best to realise an efficient, cost effective and secure offshore grid to ensure optimal evacuation of wind generation to shore and interconnection of North Sea countries; what steps are required to steer parties towards a selected scenario; and when these steps need to be taken (short-, medium- or long term).
The primary focus of this supplement is on one of the short-term projects, namely CleanStream – an energy hub to be located on the Danish island of Bornholm. Some of the opportunities of this project are to deploy & pilot technical, regulatory, market and economic solutions in such a way that complexity increases gradually and risks are manageable.
