Abstract
    Offshore wind farms are expected to contribute significantly to the Belgian 2020 targets for renewable energy. Today, 182 turbines are operational in the Belgian part of the North Sea. In the next few years, an additional 234-342 turbines may be installed. With 238 km² reserved for offshore wind farms in Belgium and 344 km² in the adjacent Dutch Borssele, cumulative ecological impacts may however be expected. These impacts both positive and negative, triggered an environmental monitoring programme focusing on various aspects of the marine ecosystem components, but also on the human appreciation of offshore wind farms. This report provides an overview of the offshore renewable energy development in the Belgian part of the North Sea.
