Rationale and Dates

The aim of the working group Political Communication is to formulate common expectations towards the political representatives with regard to the 2021 Bundestag elections. Central topics can be the current economic situation of the domestic offshore wind industry as well as the long-term very beneficial market situation with the target of 40 GW until 2040, the globally growing export opportunities and the implementation of the North German Hydrogen Strategy.

The offshore wind industry as well as the companies from the maritime industry need common clear "key messages" and position papers in order to be able to represent our industry in a targeted manner with one voice and coordinated messages before and on the way to the Bundestag elections and in the subsequent coalition negotiations.

In this working group, we want to develop these core messages and a position paper with you, which should include both the supply chain and the emerging hydrogen economy at sea and along the coastline. To this end, we want to work with you to determine the different expectations in the direction of politics and develop tailored messages with the participants.
