On the initiative of Poland, the EU countries bordering the Baltic Sea signed the “Baltic Sea Offshore Wind Joint Declaration of Intent” today. It is a clear signal for the expansion of offshore wind energy in this region. This initiative is intended to strengthen cooperation through a joint working group on the subject. Energy State Secretary Feicht: “Offshore wind energy is a focus of the German EU Council Presidency. In the future, we also want to implement cross-border offshore projects with our neighboring countries. Against this background, I am particularly pleased that the generation of clean energy on the sea is also making progress in the Baltic Sea region. ”In addition to the EU Council Presidency, Germany currently also holds the presidency of the North Sea Energy Cooperation. The experience gained in expanding offshore wind energy in the North Sea can now also be used to a greater extent for cooperation with the Baltic Sea residents. Many countries in the Baltic Sea area are at an early stage in the development of offshore wind energy, so today’s initiative represents an important step forward. Germany currently has 7.7 GW of installed offshore capacities in the North and Baltic Seas.
