The Ocean grid project

Ocean Grid focuses on offshore grid technology to reduce the costs of offshore wind. The project is organised in five subprojects, of which four are industry-led. These address challenges at a high technology readiness level, and at a 2030 time horizon. The fifth subproject is a Collaborative and Knowledge-building Project (KSP) that addresses longer-term issues.
