      Source: Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and EnergyFederal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection Robert Habeck traveled to Hamburg today to find out more about further plans for the expansion of wind energy at sea and to officially commission the Kaskasi offshore wind farm north of the island of Helgoland.Federal Minister Habeck: “Offshore wind energy is a strong driver of the energy transition. The wind turbines at sea can each produce larger amounts of electricity in more hours of the year than wind turbines on land. That is why we have significantly increased the expansion targets to at least 30 gigawatts in 2030 in the Offshore Wind Energy Act, and we have also significantly improved the legal framework and accelerated the procedures Habeck will discuss the area potential for the further expansion of offshore wind energy and possible solutions to conflicts of use. "The Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency is our reliable partner for the successful expansion of wind energy at sea. Thanks to the good cooperation between BMWK and BSH and the forward-looking planning, we have a clear timetable for achieving the ambitious expansion goals and beyond.” With the amendment to the Wind-on-Sea Act, the BMWK has legal and technical supervision of all departments taken in the Department of Order of the Seas. This ensures efficient enforcement of the legal regulations and offers the possibility of close cooperation, which is necessary to achieve the goals. Habeck will then visit a substation of the Amrumbank West wind farm to inspect the Kaskasi wind farm together with representatives from RWE and Siemens Gamesa officially inaugurate. With an installed capacity of 342 megawatts (MW), Kaskasi can theoretically supply more than 400,000 households per year with green electricity. Minister Habeck: “Last year, Kaskasi was the only new wind farm at sea. Today's inauguration is therefore an important milestone and is also intended to mark a turning point. We must and want to become faster. This can only be achieved together, which is why my visit to Hamburg and the BSH today is very important.” You can find more information on the topic of expanding wind energy at sea here.
