Conference: Situation in Germany's offshore wind power industry remains difficult

May 17, 2021


Abstract : Despite positive signals at a National Maritime Conference in Rostock, the situation for the offshore wind power industry in Germany remains difficult.

Despite positive signals at a National Maritime Conference in Rostock, the situation for the offshore wind power industry in Germany remains difficult. "No new turbines will be connected to the grid by the end of next year," said Andreas Wagner, managing director of the Offshore Wind Energy Foundation, on Tuesday.

A real investment push is needed, Wagner said. To achieve this, he said, additional tenders must be issued to exploit the existing potential as quickly as possible and combined with rapid commissioning. "Bringing investments forward now helps the economy and climate protection in equal measure," Wagner said.

The serious consequences of the lack of wind energy expansion in the North Sea and the Baltic Sea - company closures, employment losses, and migration from the German market, for example - must be overcome as quickly as possible, he said. The industry has continuously warned of these consequences in recent years.

At the same time, the emphasis on climate protection and resource conservation at the conference was welcomed by the wind energy industry as an important signal of change. It was pointed out that offshore wind energy can form an important building block in the maritime value chain. There is enormous potential offered by the path to a climate-neutral energy economy, said Wolfram Axthelm, managing director of the German Wind Energy Association. "The messages now need to be translated into the realities of the industry," he said.
