“German Chapter OffshoreWind4Kids”: German Offshore Wind Energy Foundation, Competence Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency, DNV and Northland Power Europe agree on cooperation with OffshoreWind4Kids
On March 23, 2022, William Beuckelaers, managing director of OffshoreWind4Kids, DNV, Northland Power Europe (NPE), the Competence Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CC4E) at Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg) and the German Offshore Wind Energy Foundation signed an agreement in Hamburg on a cooperation with OffshoreWind4Kids within the framework of “German Chapter for OffshoreWind4Kids”.
The focus of the cooperation will be on activities to promote interest in technical issues of offshore wind energy among children and young people.
OffshoreWind4Kids teaches children and young people about engineering, technologies and renewable energies in a playful way using miniature offshore wind turbines. With the help of construction kit systems developed by William Beuckelaers of "OffshoreWind4Kids", children and young people – boys and girls alike – can be enthused about technical issues and any inhibition thresholds can be reduced. The “OffshoreWind4Kids” initiative was first brought to Germany by DNV and has subsequently found further supporters here.20220323_Press Release MOU Offshore Wind 4 Kids_EN_final.pdf
