WAB German Inland Campaign
The aim of the WAB German Inland Campaign is to support the visibility of the nationwide value chain of the offshore wind industry. Because the suppliers are the foundation of the industry through their innovations and specialized services.
The study published in May 2019 by the Bremen market research institute wind:research shows: The supply chain of the offshore wind industry can be found throughout Germany. Around 24,500 jobs depend directly on offshore wind, and North Rhine-Westphalia and federal states such as Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria also benefit from the still young value chain.
Not only plant manufacturers on the North Sea and Baltic Sea coasts are affected by the reduced expansion targets in Germany. Numerous small and medium-sized supplier companies are also suffering from the consequences of the lack of secure framework conditions and the less ambitious expansion target for offshore wind energy.
The WAB German Inland Campaign is supported by the EU Interreg Project Inn2POWER. The campaign was presented on 26 and 27 June 2019 at the Branchentag Windenergie NRW. Two further dates for the WAB German Inland Campaign are planned for this year.
