The Wind Energy and green Hydrogen Cluster WAB e.V. has signed a cooperation agreement with Team Norway, represented by Norwegian Energy Partners. Both parties agreed to collaborate with a focus on offshore wind development and green hydrogen and respective supply chains.
The cooperation will focus on the 20th Windforce conference, which is organised in June 2023 in Bremerhaven, where Norway will be next year's partner country, and on reciprocal delegation trips and joint workshops. The focus of all activities is to encourage mutual contact and cooperation between WAB members and Norwegian companies, as well as branches of Norwegian companies in Germany.
Norway would like to see 30 GW of offshore wind capacity allocated by 2040. Germany plans to have 30 GW installed in the North and Baltic Seas by 2030. It is planned to increase the visibility of the joint opportunities arising from the developments in the Norwegian and German markets as well as the offers of WAB e.V. and Team Norway for their partners and members. The cooperation is initially planned for one year but can be extended if there is joint interest.
