Denmark opens test scheme

Monday, 27 July, 2015 - 08:00

The Danish Energy Agency calls for applications for a special test scheme of 50 MW for new offshore wind technology. The deadline for applications is 15 October 2015 and the first commitments are expected to be assigned within the end of the year.

The Danish Energy Agency (DEA) opens applications for a test scheme of 50 MW for the test and demonstration of new offshore wind technology. The scheme, which is a part of the Danish energy agreement from 2012, aims at the development of new and innovative wind turbine projects which have the potential to reduce the production costs of electricity from offshore wind turbines. Reduction of the production costs has been one of the main focuses of the industry in recent years.

The projects will be rated on their development potential as well as on their potential to lead to real cost reductions in the market. Projects that are assessed to have the overall largest effect on the possibilities to reduce the cost of offshore wind farms will be granted the aid. The first commitments are expected to be assigned by the DEA within the end of the year. As a part of evaluating the applications, the DEA will rely on evaluations from independent experts.
