After the shipyard crisis, offshore wind energy secures locations and jobs through the construction of components for offshore wind turbines, transformer stations and the use of sea ports as logistics centres.
40 percent of the jobs are located in the western and southern part of Germany, far away from the Northern and Baltic seabord. An extensive project chain (development, construction, operation) also creates indirect employment in many organisations. This clearly shows that offshore wind energy enables nationwide value creation.
Offshore wind farms consistently produce large amounts of electricity. Good predictability is an important contribution to a secure energy supply.
