The German Foundation for OFFSHORE WINDENERGY and its partners BWE, BWO, VDMA and WAB e.V. presented the annual status report of offshore wind energy development in Germany today. According to the report, no new installations of offshore wind energy took place in the second half of 2020. In total, 1,501 turbines with a capacity of 7,770 MW deliver clean, safe and cost-effective electricity from the sea to the mainland. In the eyes of the industry, it is important to enable the tendering of potentially usable areas as soon as possible to enable earlier construction activities and thus preserve existing innovation potential, employment and the value chain in Germany. Furthermore, the report emphasized that the positive market dynamics invoked by the EU strategy for renewable offshore energy need to be utilized in order to trigger an investment push.
