STORY: Federal Minister of Economics Robert Habeck visited Siemens Gamesa’s offshore wind turbine production facility in Cuxhaven on Tuesday. Including a tour of the hall and some discussions with workers. On this occasion, the Green politician emphasized the strategic importance of offshore wind power. Robert Habeck (Greens), Federal Minister of Economics: “We have to create the political support instruments in such a way that Cuxhaven, Germany, remains competitive and can survive this international competition for security reasons.” The visit fits into the current political picture. Because on Monday, the federal cabinet had approved a law to implement an EU emergency regulation for the accelerated expansion of wind power. It provides that environmental impact assessments on certain areas for wind turbines and power lines can be omitted. This should apply to all projects that start before July 2024.
