TenneT expects 11.5 gigawatt offshore wind energy on TenneT’s high voltage in 2030

TenneT again took major steps in the first half of 2018 to enable the energy transition in the Netherlands and Germany.

For example, TenneT is developing a net at sea in the Netherlands, with which it is expected that a total of 11.5 gigawatts (GW) of offshore wind energy will be connected to TenneT’s high-voltage grid onshore in 2030.

In addition, TenneT is in the process of realizing onshore projects to ensure the transport of sustainably generated electricity. In Germany, TenneT is preparing tendering procedures for the SuedLink (700 km) and SuedOstLink (580 km) projects.

These underground freeways will have a combined capacity of 6 GW, comparable to six nuclear power plants. From about 2025 these cable connections will transport large quantities of renewable wind energy from the north to the large consumer centers in the south of the country.
