The Coalition brings together NGOs, wind industry and transmission system operators across Europe to cooperate on the sustainable deployment of offshore wind, while ensuring alignment with nature protection and healthy marine ecosystems.
The founding members have signed a Memorandum of Understanding. The MoU defines how the coalition members will work together on developing a voluntary collaborative approach to planning environmentally friendly offshore wind energy and grid infrastructure.
The Coalition work will support the Maritime Spatial Plans and contribute to the elaboration and implementation of the European climate, energy and environmental objectives. This Coalition for offshore energy and nature strives to fill knowledge gaps, develop and suggest solutions needed and monitor developments as well as impacts and efficacy of measures in the offshore space.
