Amprion joins Coalition for a sustainable offshore energy development
A Coalition of NGOs, wind industry and transmission system operators has joined forces today to cooperate on the sustainable deployment of offshore wind, while ensuring alignment with nature protection and healthy marine ecosystems. Amprion is one of the 18 organisations from across Europe who have signed a Memorandum of Understanding and committed themselves to working together.
“Offshore wind generation and its corresponding grid expansion are the key to achieve the European climate goals. As a TSO, Amprion is proud to be a part of the Offshore Coalition. It is a unique chance to connect and work on sustainable offshore grid expansion with NGO’s and the wind industry,” said Gerald Kaendler, Head of Asset Management at Amprion.
The Coalition is coordinated by the Renewables Grid Initiative (RGI). “RGI is proud to be part of this Coalition and to act as convener and coordinator for this diverse group of stakeholders. Renewable Offshore infrastructure is essential for Europe to meet its climate and energy targets. Planning collaboratively and with an ecosystem approach is the only way to avoid damages, delays and conflicts,” said Antonella Battaglini, CEO Renewables Grid Initiative.
