The Netherlands is the first country in Europe where a subsidy free offshore wind farm will be realized. With this experience, and the goal to have 11.5 GW offshore wind power up running by 2030, we are preparing for a future-proof tendering system. Clear steps to move forward in offshore wind energy development.
Offshore wind power is an important element of the renewable energy mix, without which climate protection and a sustainable energy supply cannot be guaranteed. As a result of the low tender results, it would have been urgently necessary to improve the framework conditions for offshore wind energy in the recently passed "Energiesammelgesetz".
