This chapter focuses on the legal issues associated with proposals for offshore grid development in the EU and the US, and compares the means by which these might be addressed. The chapter is organized as follows. Section II examines the international legal framework for offshore development and considers the key question of whether it provides sufficient support for offshore grid projects of the type that are now being proposed. Section III considers how suitable regimes could be put in place to regulate the development and use of transmission infrastructure in the North Sea. Section IV provides an overview of the gradual progress that is being made towards creating a regulatory framework for offshore electricity generation and transmission in the US. Section V concludes by identifying key legal considerations that should be taken into account in strategic planning for combined offshore wind energy generation and transmission projects in general.

Keywords:   United States, offshore grid development, EU, transmission infrastructure, North Sea, electricity generation, transmission, wind energy
