Offshore Wind Energy Potential in the Mediterranean Sea within the European perspective

Vengono riportate le peculiarità del bacino del Mediterraneo insieme ad alcuni strumenti e progetti dedicati a sostegno dello sviluppo del settore eolico offshore nell’area del Mediterraneo. Sono inoltre presentati alcuni progetti co-finanziati dalla CE e le strategie e le politiche europee nel settore.

Offshore wind energy is at present a well-developed sector especially in the Northern European countries. The Mediterranean basin has very different characteristics from the North Europe where many offshore wind farms are installed. Many different countries face the basin, with very different and generally not coordinated energy policies and regulations. The wind resource is generally lower and the water is generally deeper than in the North Sea.

The basin is also crowded with traditional and emerging offshore activities. However, a strong experience and many infrastructures for the offshore installations are present and, in a medium long term, the offshore wind energy sector – mainly floating – could revitalise the economy of the region starting from the role of ports and shipyards, with a significant number of local job created. Some dedicated tools and projects results to support the development of offshore wind sector in the Mediterranean area are reported. Moreover, in order to decrease the possible conflicts, combinations with other activities can be considered. Lastly, EU funded research projects and strategies and policies are presented.
