No more ban on wind farms near shore

The development of wind energy farms in shallow water near shore is not a taboo anymore. To reach the tightened ambition for renewable energy, the political party  PvdA pleads for urgent study of the possibilities of nearshore wind energy. This according to the newspaper NRC.

After the construction of OWEZ offshore-wind park at 10 kilometre of Egmond aan Zee the development of wind farms in the 12-mile zone was prohibited. The political party PvdA suggests to investigate the possibilities of wind energy in this 12-mile zone. Pondera Consult proposes to indicate 3 areas for the Dutch coast for nearshore wind energy. One does agree this is an sensitive area, but the ban seems to be broken.
