Press release: Offshore expansion is starting up again – not yet smoothly!
With a joint press release with the Federal Association of Wind Farm Operators Offshore e. V. (BWO), the German Wind Energy Association e. V. (BWE), VDMA Power Systems and WAB e. V., the Foundation OFFSHORE-WINDENERGIE published the semi-annual status report on the expansion of offshore wind energy in Germany on July 12, 2022.
- Expansion targets of at least 30 gigawatts (GW) by 2030, 40 GW by 2035 and 70 GW by 2045 offer long-term prospects for offshore wind energy and the supply industry
- In the first half of 2022, the first foundations were installed in the offshore wind energy projects Kaskasi and Arcadis East, but no wind turbines have been installed yet
- New Wind Energy at Sea Act threatens to further increase costs and thus jeopardise the achievement of the new expansion targets
- German offshore wind energy sector urgently needs industrial policy support and qualified personnel
