Study for the Baltic Offshore Wind Energy Cooperation initiative under the Baltic Energy Market Interconnection Plan (BEMIP)

The Baltic Energy Market Interconnection Plan (BEMIP) aims to achieve an open and integrated regional energy market of electricity and gas in the Baltic Sea Region and to promote, among other objectives, sustainable energy advancement. As part of its efforts to establish cross-border cooperation on renewable energy development in the region, it intends to explore the potential for offshore wind energy as a means of spearheading economic development in the area.


The potential for offshore wind generation in the Baltic Sea does not only depend on wind potentials and the availability of suitable sites, but also on the availability of adequate grid capacity, the framework for grid development, the market conditions, and the regulatory framework prevailing in the surrounding member countries. The project, which is carried out in collaboration with COWI and THEMA Consulting Group (team lead), is intended to analyse all these aspects and to propose elements for a Roadmap of a coordinated offshore wind strategy for the Baltic Sea Region.


Ea Energy Analyses will contribute with its expertise of electricity system modelling and market-regulatory analysis, as well as with the knowledge and data gathered in several previous projects carried out within the Baltic region. The Balmorel model will be used to simulate the future power system evolution across different scenarios.


The project runs from January 2018 to June 2019.
