Variability and predictability constraints of wind hinder the cost-efficient integration of wind power generation into power markets. Within the framework of EIT KIC INNOENERGY Offwindtech project, a ‘Market Value’ tool is developed. Here, the market value of wind power generation can be assessed with respect to its wind site and the respective power market it is integrated in. A case study is introduced to compare the potential market value of different wind sites (offshore/onshore) and of different power market concepts (day ahead/intra-day). It is found that the relative market value of wind power does not significantly differ between its diverse conditions. Nevertheless, when considering the costs of wind power generation, coastal wind power generation, to be sold in intra-day markets, has the largest potential to be cost-efficient. Future reduction of offshore installation and maintenance cost could further increase the market value/competition of offshore wind power. The difference of predictability accuracy between onshore and offshore wind power generation has negligible impact on the results
