  • To tackle climate change, the Netherlands has set ambitious targets to reduce its emissions by 2030 and increase its renewable energy share. Offshore wind plays a crucial role to fulfil these targets, which is why the Dutch government has developed a roadmap to significantly increase the offshore wind power capacity.
  • The current offshore wind market is characterized by increased competition as players from different industries and countries have entered the market. Other important factors are the absence of governmental subsidies, growing uncertainty in revenue securities, and further cost reductions with a focus on OPEX.
  • To keep up with these market trends, offshore wind players need to continuously improve their commercial activities and operations. Digitalization is key to ensure cost competitiveness with other energy sources.
  • Offshore wind operators can foster new capabilities in data analytics, forecasting, simulation, and automation to optimize their energy portfolios. This should also enable more efficient execution of development strategies, maintenance and back-office activities, and operations. In the end, technology is able to contribute to process optimization and ultimately improve the margin per megawatt-hour.
