Dutch Offshore Wind Mission To Ireland
On Monday, the 12th of September 2022 a group of Dutch delegates visited MaREI in Ringaskiddy. The trade mission focused on Offshore wind (fixed and floating), port development and hydrogen.
The Dublin Declaration proposes 260 GW of offshore wind capacity in northern European seas by 2050. This is a huge opportunity for Ireland and the Netherlands to work together to create a decarbonised, clean and prosperous Europe.
MaREI will research pathways to use the power of our ocean winds for the betterment of society. We will co-design with industry and communities, the science needed to inform policy for large-scale electrification of energy, and the evidence needed to assess optimum uses of hydrogen and power to X systems to create sustainable transport fuels (for ships, trucks and planes) and chemicals (such as ammonia, methanol).
