SDE+ Offshore Wind Energy

In 2013, the Dutch government signed an Energy Agreement with parties involved in the energy market. The Wind Energy Roadmap, which outlines how offshore wind energy generation capacity is to be increased from 1,000 MW to 4,500 MW in 2023, is an important part of this Energy Agreement.
