Join us for Baltic Sea Offshore Wind 2024 Outlook LIVE WEBINAR
The Baltic Sea boasts the potential to develop over 90 GW of offshore wind capacity. In recent days, BalticWind.EU has conducted a series of interviews featuring key voices in the industry, including WindEurope, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), the European Commission, the European Parliament, representatives of wind energy associations in the Baltic Sea region, and leaders of the offshore industry. These interviews shed light on crucial topics for the effective development of the industry.
Moreover, it’s crucial to highlight a pivotal event at the end of 2023 – the endorsement of the European Wind Charter by the Energy Ministers of 26 EU Member States. This formal commitment underscores the strategic value of wind energy being “made in Europe” and emphasizes the urgent need to bolster the continent’s wind industry.
Implementation of the EU Wind Power Package:
The EU, represented by the European Commission, 26 EU Energy Ministers, and over 300 companies from the wind energy sector, endorsed the European Wind Charter, committing to actions outlined in the Wind Power Package. Notably, improvements in financing, a €4 billion Innovation Fund, and changes in lending rules by the European Investment Bank have already set the stage for the EU’s commitment to wind energy.
This year is pivotal for accelerating offshore development in the Baltic Sea, with ambitious goals set. Now, the focus is on implementation and building offshore wind farms. During the LIVE WEBINAR, we will delve into strategies for achieving a rapid buildout of wind projects and overcoming major obstacles.
Key focuses of the event:
- Addressing permitting and supply chain challenges.
- Exploring possibilities for developing interconnectors.
- Strategies to accelerate grid deployment.
- Promoting local content.
