Abstract:For the realization of the 2050 energy-positive goals in the Netherlands, going deeper in the North Sea to harness wind energy is inevitable. This energy pursuit is due to the high competition on land and the sea’s near-shore areas. Nevertheless, being in the first steps of development, producing energy from the deep marine environment is frequently viewed as troublesome and uneconomic. This perspective mainly includes the high costs of floating foundation technologies and grid connections. The current models for evaluating offshore energy costs are commonly misrepresented, prompting vulnerabilities that may hold investors back and hinder the market entrance of this renewable-energy market. Along these lines, an exact forecast of marine energy costs is essential to conclude the spectrum of its competitiveness. Accordingly, the study focused on technical and cost modeling of harnessing different energy resources as wave energy to maximize the system’s output. More importantly, the study examined the possibility of utilizing green hydrogen as the energy carrier instead of exporting electricity through grid connections. For the most cost-effective green hydrogen transportation, the possibility of using the planned-to-be-decommissioned oil and gas platforms and pipelines by the Dutch government is considered. In other words, the ultimate goal was to find the most profitable way to invest in producing energy from the Dutch deep waters.
