The Heads of Governments and the Energy Ministers of the 8 countries around the Baltic Sea met in Copenhagen the 30th of August 2022. They agreed on more cooperation to exploit the great potential for offshore wind around the Baltic Sea. Moreover, they signed a declaration to ensure more cooperation in offshore wind and agreed on working more closely on energy in general.
The perspectives and possibilities for the renewable business around the Baltics are great and there is an enormous potential for offshore wind. Today there is 2.8 GW of installed capacity. The eight countries have committed to increase the installed capacity to 19.6 GW by 2030.
Denmark and Germany are the only two Baltic countries with large-scale wind farms in the Baltic Sea, but they want to further increase that. The other Baltic countries are also determined to have ambitious targets within offshore wind.
