The global shift to renewable energy, including large-scale development of offshore wind farms (OWFs), is well underway.


This document constitutes the report on a workshop organised in the context of the EU funded CAPACTIY4MSP project.

Multi-use in ocean space, and seas, entails the co-location of different industries or technologies and their corresponding activities that take place at the same time in a specific location.


The study is developed within the context of the SEANSE project with the aim of comparing and analysing different criteria applied by the North Sea countries when planning their offshore wind farms (OWF), while considering the environment and othe

This study, conducted by the National Federation of Fisherman’s Organisations (NFFO) in the UK, on behalf of the Marine Management Organisation (MMO), provides insights on the effects of the Offshore Wind Farms (OWF) on fishing practices in UK wat


An often-discussed theme in Maritime Spatial planning is the relation between Offshore Wind Farms (OWF) and shipping and how to plan to reduce conflict/risk between the two sectors.

To achieve renewable energy targets, some MSP authorities are zoning for Offshore Wind Farms in their Maritime Spatial Plans. An important factor for the energy production of a specific site is the so-called capacity density.


The report provides an overview of the current status of offshore energy in the North Sea. It focusses on the current cooperation initiatives, the energy profiles and energy targets of the different countries, as well as upcoming industry trends.


The practice is dealing with the question how many jobs were created and what potential for job creation exists due to the expansion of offshore wind in a Swedish municipality. The method used is transferable to other regions.
