Offshore Wind power - offshore assessment areas
The dataset shows the mapping of land use interests in the 15 assessment areas identified in the report "Havvind – Forslag til utredningsområder". Impact assessments have been carried out for business, community and environmental interests in and around the assessment areas, and the technical-economic suitability of the areas has been assessed. The impact assessments have been carried out at a general level, and the objective of the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate has been to obtain knowledge of the assessment areas that would be of relevance to decisions. This should provide a sufficient knowledge base so that recommendations can be given concerning the opening of areas for licence applications for the development of offshore wind farms.
