Lagerwey signed the GROW agreement on June 15, 2016. GROW stands for Growth through Research, development & demonstration in Offshore Wind.
GROW wants to invest € 100 million within the next five years in research, development and demonstration of innovations in offshore wind energy. The consortium – which consists of ECN, TenneT, TNO, Shell and Lagerwey – would thus reduce the cost of offshore wind to 7 cents per kWh and improves the Netherlands’ position in the sector. The plan for the GROW innovation program was offered to Minister Kamp of Dutch Economic Affairs during the WindDays 2016 in Rotterdam.
