The Dutch government has presented an “energy agenda” for the post-2023 period, containing a roadmap for offshore wind that foresees an acceleration of the expansion for wind at sea to about 1GW per year in the 2023-2030 period.

The government next year still needs to pass more concrete legislation that would free the way for the first in a new series of offshore wind tenders to take place in 2020 as Rechargefirst reported early last week.

The new 1GW tenders would follow up on a current series of five 700MW tenders lasting through 2019 that are the result of an energy accord between major Dutch parties and society that lays down the Netherland’s energy policy through 2023.
