Offshore Wind Energy and Maritime Spatial Planning - SUBMARINER workshop on 22nd September


This highly interactive online workshop with 60 attendees supported the exchange between the public authorities responsible for maritime spatial planning, offshore wind energy authorities, and the offshore wind industry.

The workshop was led by the SUBMARINER Network for Blue Growth EEIG on behalf of the Capacity4MSP project and co-organised by WindEurope, EUSBSR PA Energy, BEMIP (energy ministries), Vattenfall, German and Estonian wind energy associations.

The workshop provided a good base for a potential in-person workshop to take place in 2021. All the presentations will be made available to attendees as part of the workshop report.

Apart from sharing good practices and lessons learned during planning processes undertaken in several Baltic Sea countries, the workshop also provided an opportunity for the discussion and the exchange of views and insights on the topics that were identified as relevant by public authorities and industry: 

Topic 1: Maritime spatial planning addressing the national development targets for renewable energy 

Topic 2: Spatial planning criteria for offshore cables - interactions with other sectors, with land interconnectors and across borders 

Topic 3: Co-location & multi-use of space between the offshore wind farms and other uses – the need for a collaborative approach to policymaking 

Topic 4: Offshore wind environmental impacts (positive and negative) . The workshop report with main conclusions and insights from the workshop will be published on this page →
