As a forerunner in the energy transition, it is of course important that we look at our CO₂ footprint. In addition, we like to think along with you.

Yes, websites also have a carbon footprint...

The internet consumes a lot of electricity. 416.2 TWh per year to be exact. That is more than the whole of the United Kingdom per year in total.

  • We use a green server

  • Dark mode

    Displaying the website in dark mode saves considerable energy compared to a white background. As a visitor, you have a direct influence on the footprint of in terms of display in this choice.

    In addition, you can also save a lot of energy by setting (OLED) screens to dark mode.

What is this Innovation Call aimed at?

Digitalization plays an increasingly crucial role in our renewable energy supply from sea. This requires guaranteeing a digitally safe, reliable and resilient energy system. Do you have an innovative idea that can strengthen the cyber resilience of our offshore wind farms? Does your idea help to increase the supply reliability of offshore wind energy? Does your idea increase the recovery capacity of our offshore wind farms after an unexpected cyber attack? And could you use financial support for this? Then this open call is for you.

The energy system requires more and more remote control and monitoring, making the system increasingly digitalized. This requires process-based agreements on prevention, detection and response to cyber threats and attacks in the offshore energy supply chain.

Developments in the field of high performance computing (HPC), robotization, digital twins, pattern recognition, data-driven design and machine learning are increasingly part of the offshore wind sector. Examples include determining the residual lifespan and maintenance needs of components and offshore infrastructure, or robotization of installation and maintenance. The safe and optimal operation of wind farms in an energy system that will largely become dependent on wind and sun also requires prediction, chain coordination, regulations and safety systems that guarantee the stability of our energy supply.

Examples of relevant topics

  • Standardization of cyber resilience systems
  • Innovations that help with anomaly detection
  • Mapping the risks and vulnerabilities in the offshore energy sector
  • Addressing supply chain risks of offshore energy with regard to cyber resilience
  • Increasing awareness of cyber risks within offshore energy
  • Influencing behavior to increase the cyber resilience of offshore energy
  • Education, communication and training programs for offshore energy professionals on the topic of cyber resilience
  • Applied solutions regarding the resilience of digital systems
  • Strategies to deal with ransomware (threats).

Possible topics are not limited to this list. Are you unsure whether your topic is relevant for this Open Innovation Call? Please contact us at

For this call we are looking for projects that increase digital resilience from a technical, social and/or behavioral perspective. Consortia that include an SME receive extra points during the assessment.
