Abstract

This paper discusses systemic problems hindering the large-scale European diffusion of offshore wind technology using the Technological Innovation System perspective. The most urgent identified problems include: cost of technology, lack of common vision on grid improvement, fragmented European electricity market, reliability and availability of technology, limited grid access and capacity as well as serious deficiency of high and middle level personnel. To address the problems the paper proposes a systemic policy package composed of such elements as: Innovation Zones, Expert Mobility Programme and Grid Initiative. The paper argues that a European coordinated action is beneficial not only for EU but also for its Member States.
