Just before the summer holiday period, in June this year, the province of Nova Scotia in Canada released its first Offshore Wind Roadmap with a target to offer seabed leases for 5 GW of offshore wind energy by 2030.
In Nova Scotia, offshore wind is an immense untapped resource, which could not only contribute to decarbonizing its local grid, but also make the province a green energy exporter.
Aegir Insights in collaboration with Net Zero Atlantic supported Nova Scotia in the challenge of analyzing the province’s offshore wind resource base with an early-stage and high-level value mapping and visualization of offshore wind project economics.
Aegir’s advanced geospatial investment software, Aegir GAMMA, has been used as an interactive way to screen market and site attractiveness, providing a dynamic visualization of offshore wind resources and their economic potential.
The value heat map always considers factors that directly impact the costs, such as wind speed, water depth, distance to suitable ports and grid connection points and can be further customized according to other considerations or constraints relevant to the area in question.
Aegir Insights’ high-level value mapping of Nova Scotia’s offshore wind resource gives an early-stage overview of attractive sites for offshore wind development, helping shape its strategy for regional development of offshore wind.
