Wind farms

The use of the offshore wind energy in German waters predominantly takes place outside the 12 sea mile zone in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ). With this, the majority of the planned projects and those still in operation is located in the high seas of the German North and Baltic Sea. As at June 2014, 628 MW of offshore wind capacity was being connected to the grid in Germany. By 2030, a capacity of 15,000 MW is to be connected to the grid according to the plans of the Federal Government.

 

Currently, offshore wind farms (OWP) with a total capacity of about 2,400 MW are being constructed; wind farms with a capacity of around 9,000 MW received an authorization. Moreover, further 94 projects with about 6,600 OffWEA and a total capacity of up to about 30,000 MW are in the process of authorization so that all in all, about 40,000 MW are in the planning stage (as at June 2014). The maps of the German North and Baltic Sea provide an overview of both the location and the status of the projects.
