SCBA Wind at sea within 12 mile zone (nearshore)

The SCBA concluded that near shore locations for windfarms are a better option from a societal point of view. It is cheaper to build the windfarms near shore. The energy production is about the same as the production outside the 12-mileszone (just a little less wind). The investment in windfarms however is lower, mostly because the cables to transport the energy are shorter. The study was done in cooperation with the consultants of Decisio. The contribution of Witteveen and Bos was mostly on the societal impacts (like fishery, recreation & tourism and nature values).
