    Offshore wind power pending environmental and socioeconomic impact studies

    March 24, 2023 - CE Noticias Financieras


      Foro Asturias requested with its Proposition not of Law "to leave without effect the content of the publication in the Official State Gazette of the Maritime Space Management Plans and revoke the Royal Decree 150/2023, of February 28th". In addition, it urged the Government to develop scientific studies and socio-economic impact to "determine and specify the consequences on marine ecosystems and fisheries" of the installation of offshore wind farms, "preventing, in any case, its installation until they are not carried out and evaluated". The text finally approved by the Committee on Agriculture, Fisheries and Food of the Congress requires that the Marine Spatial Management Plans (POEM) are developed from an integrated approach and with a "continuous" communication channel between different administrations and sectors affected.

      In addition, the PNL includes the need to give a hearing at the "highest level" to representatives of the Platform in Defense of Fisheries and Marine Ecosystems, the Observatory of Marine Wind Galicia and its counterpart in Asturias, as well as federations and fishermen's guilds affected.

      The aim is that they can expose their "discrepancies" with offshore wind and with the content of Royal Decree 150/2023, of February 28, approving the maritime spatial plans of the five Spanish marine districts.

      Finally, this PNL urges to attend the initiatives and resolutions adopted in the Parliament and in different regional parliaments in favor of fishermen and their opposition to offshore wind plans, "as finally approved by the Council of Ministers".
