Offshore wind farms tendered towards 2030
Find information regarding the Danish Energy Agency’s tender for offshore wind farms towards 2030
In order to accelerate the expansion of offshore wind production in Denmark, the signatory parties of the "Climate agreement on green power and heat of 25 June 2022" have decided that a minimum of 4 GW offshore wind capacity has to be tendered for construction before the end of 2030. Furthermore, it was decided with the Financial Act of 2022 that further 2 GW OWFs should be tendered before the end of 2030. It has been decided afterwards with a supplementary agreement regarding Energy Island Bornholm, that one of the 2 GW should be part of the Energy Island Bornholm, which capacity was expanded from 2 to 3 GW.
Overall, this means that political agreements have been made to tender a minimum of 9 GW additional offshore wind in Denmark for construction before the end of 2030, including 3 GW from Energy Island Bornholm and 800-1,200 MW from Hesselø Offshore Wind Farm (OWF) (which must be constructed before the end of 2029).
The final locations of the OWFs are awaiting a final political decision. However, in order to ensure that the OWFs can be fully constructed before the end of 2030, the DEA is initiating planning, environmental assessments and preliminary investigations for areas, which have been assessed as suitable for the establishment of OWFs in a fine screening of marine areas in 2022. These are areas in the North Sea (Nordsøen I), Kattegat (Kattegat II) and the Baltic Sea (Kriegers Flak II), as well as the new location of the Hesselø OWF in Kattegat.
