Abstract:This inquiry of this research is to elaborate on the relationship between national regulations and the development of offshore wind energy. Thorough examinations provide profound answers on the coherence between policy instruments and the return on investment (ROI) gap, renewable energy sources face. Legislative measures are estimated to affect the governance structure of Germany’s energy system, hence the promotion of renewable energy. The case study uses the development process of offshore wind energy in Germany as unit of analysis, meticulously estimating the development offshore energy will perform under the German Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG). Policy measures identified within the EEG are able to sufficiently close the ROI gap. The EEG is mainly used as the legal basis, whereas prognosticating studies, policy papers and estimations provide the data for offshore wind prices and development. The results found show that current legislative measures promote subsidies and forecast to over-subsidize offshore wind in the future.
