Germany awakes with new offshore targets! New government, new ambitions: How fast can Germany speed up the offshore development plans and adjust the grid expansion plans? Join us online at this traditional event for the offshore wind sector and hear global industry experts share their insights on policies, opportunities, and challenges.
The new German Government (SPD, Greens, FPD) decided on changes for the further development of offshore wind in Germany. The installation for offshore wind in 2030 was raised from 20 to 30 gigawatts (GW) and 40 GW by 2035. Even more interesting, an ambitious installation target was set for the year 2045 at 70 GW. For the first time, Germany will also aim for 10 GW of electrolysis capacity.
The 2022 edition of HOW conference invites industry, politics, and stakeholders to discuss these significant positive political improvements in Germany. With a prominent panel we want to get answers to questions like:
- What does this new ambition imply for all stakeholders from a German, European but also global perspective?
- Which targets and ambitions are actually feasible from a technical and supply chain perspective if it is possible to speed up the legislation like this?
- How will these new targets change the perception of the German offshore wind industry in a rapidly developing global offshore wind landscape?
Whilst short term target improvements are needed to ensure there is no delivery gap, i the panel will also focus on the long-term plan from 2030 to 2040 and discuss how this significant offshore capacity build-up can be achieved and aligned with all stakeholders over that decade to achieve maximum investor attractiveness and a cost-effective and efficient development of industry capacities and infrastructure.
