This important book places the framework for offshore wind and grid interconnections within a wider context and discusses the impact of technological issues, economic issues, spatial issues, and market issues on the legal framework.
Analysing how the objectives laid down in environmental instruments can collide with the fast development of offshore wind farms and grid interconnections, the author discusses ways in which the current framework could move towards a more fully integrated system.
She also describes existing approaches to the management of seas and oceans, with examples of their implementation in the EU’s Integrated Maritime Policy, as well as the ocean policies in Australia and New Zealand. Among the issues and topics covered are the following:-
The role of regional sea conventions in the North and Baltic Seas are taken into account, as are the exclusive economic zones defined by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. As a major new contribution to a debate within the European Union on the importance of maritime spatial planning and the rational use of sea space, not only for offshore wind and grid interconnections but for all marine and maritime resources, this book will prove indispensable to lawyers, policymakers, officials, and academics concerned with the management of sea space to include the wind farms necessary to achieve the Union’s 2020 renewable energy goals.
