“Germany to limit offshore wind power”


Germany has capped the expansion of offshore wind power to 3.1 gigawatts (GW) between 2021 and 2025 because the high-voltage power lines needed to carry green energy from the windy north to the industrial south will not be ready, report Andreas Rinke and Caroline Copley for Reuters. The revision of the new energy law, seen by Reuters, also sets out the size of tenders for new offshore projects. For 2017, 1.7 GW will be auctioned, while in 2018 this will be cut to 1.4 GW.
