Netherlands Lounge @ Seanergy 2021
21 September @ 08:00 - 24 September @ 17:00€ 1000
France has set a goal to become carbon-neutral by 2050. the Programmation Pluriannuelle de L’énergie (PPE) published in April 2020 sets out the country’s energy transition objectives until 2028. The text provides that the capacity of offshore wind power must increase within the coming years. In 2020, there are 7 awarded bottom fixed offshore projects under developments and 4 pilots floating offshore wind projects in France. To achieve the ambitious objectives set by the PPT, a call for tenders need to be launched every year at a rate of around 1GW per year until 2028.
In 2021 a call for tender was launched for a 1GW offshore wind farm located off the Conentin Peninsula in Normandy. A winner is expected to be announced in 2022. In 2022, another 0.5 to 1GW of fixed capacity will be put up for tender in southwest France, named Sud-Atlantique.
The French government also plans to organize three separate tenders for floating wind in 2021-2022, each of which will have 250MW of capacity. The first, in 2021, will be in the southern waters of Brittany (Bretagne Sud), while the other two in 2022 are planned for areas in the Mediterranean. Another 1GW of fixed bottom offshore wind will be tendered in 2023, of which the location has not been determined yet.
With these developments, now is the time to capitalize on your business opportunities in the ofshore wind industry in France, both for fixed bottom and floating wind!
