Sweden’s transmission system operator Svenska Kraftnät as part of a unique model that "has no equivalent in the wider world" is planning to build three to six offshore wind connection points at sea that will be able to bundle between 4GW and 10GW of power and transmit the capacity to the country’s onshore grid free of cost.

The connection points are slated to be built at the border of Sweden’s territorial waters with its exclusive economic zone, with the first foreseen to be operational between 2029 and 2032, and the last in 2035, according to a 50-page document seen by Recharge.
