The findings of our new North Sea study will be revealed and discussed. The study is about the efficient routes to transport energy to shore and to distribute it to the endusers. The focus is on two main pathways: the electrons (power) pathway and the molecules pathway, with specific attention to H2 generation (power-to-gas). The North Sea countries Germany, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark and Norway are part of this study.
