WP1: Available technology, modularity and flexibility (qualitative)

Modularity is defined as being able to build sections of the North Sea Transnational Grid as soon as these are required by wind farm developments. Flexibility is defined as being able to combine different technologies and interconnect these in a stable, well controlled North Sea Transnational Grid. Work package 1 investigates the technological options from the perspective of modularity and flexibility. It will identify technically critical aspects of a Transnational Grid and generate the input for the evaluation of different Transnational Grid options in WP2.
