Ministry of the Environment supports the Offshore Wind Energy Foundation with 555,000 Euros

HANOVER/VAREL. At the beginning of February, Lower Saxony’s Energy Minister Olaf Lies (l) gave the starting signal for the Offshore Wind Energy Foundation’s “Green Hydrogen with Offshore Wind Energy” project. In Varel, he presented the local foundation with a funding decision for 550,000 Euros for the two-year project. One of the aims of the foundation is to promote the broad exchange of knowledge and experience among all stakeholders through its network. Furthermore, the project will also develop concepts and plans for the further development of the legal and economic framework. “Industry follows energy, and the energy of the future will largely be generated at sea. For me, green hydrogen is a key issue if the energy transition is to succeed,” Lies emphasised.
