Germany approves giant offshore wind farms
The German government approved a plan to build up to 40 offshore wind farms that could power eight million homes.
According to ministry statements, the wind farms should generate around 12,000 megawatts by 2030. In strong winds, this would be equivalent to the energy generated by 12 medium-sized nuclear plants. “From our planned farms in the North Sea alone, we could provide 6.8 million additional homes with electricity,” Tiefensee told reporters, adding that the farms in the Baltic Sea could provide energy for 1.5 million more households.
