Webinar Offshore Wind in Portugal

13-04-2023 @ 11:00 - 12:00

Similarly to the Netherlands, Portugal has both an important track record and future ambitions with regard to the energy transition. In 2021, over 57% of the total energy produced came from renewable sources. Portugal aims to reach 80% of its electricity consumption from renewables by 2026 and thereafter to become climate neutral in 2050.

Portugal currently has only 25MW of installed offshore capacity. Yet, wider wind energy has a very important place in the country’s renewable energy capacity: 30% of the energy production comes from wind, through 5.6 GW of installed capacity. Around 4GW of this capacity was installed between 2005 and 2012, creating opportunities in, and the need for, repowering investments. From the consumption side, important to note that the country has around 80% of its electricity consumption along a 50km shoreline extension.

Developing offshore capacity

The development of offshore capacity is now a top priority for the government. A 10GW auction will be launched by the end of 2023. As the deepsea waters close to the shore prevent the use of bottom-fixed turbines, the preference for this auction will likely be on floating solutions, leveraging from the positive experience from the Windfloat Atlantic project.

Join our webinar

To explore the opportunities that the Portuguese offshore wind market could provide for Dutch companies, we kindly invite you to join a webinar hosted by The Netherlands Embassy in Lisbon in cooperation with wind & water works and supported by RVO.
Topics will include Portugal’s strategy and the preliminary zoning that was subject to public consultation by Maria João Rodrigues, Advisor at the Ministry of Energy & Climate and the experiences gained in the Portuguese wind market during the execution of the Windfloat Atlantic project by Marco Wiedijk, VP Business Development at Principle Power. After the presentations, there is room for Q&A and discussion.
