Energy security in focus at the Baltic Offshore Wind Forum in Berlin

The Council of the Baltic Sea States, in partnership with the German Federal Foreign Office, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, and the German Energy-Agency (dena), is organising the Baltic Offshore Wind Forum, which will take place on 9 May 2023 at the Federal Foreign Office in Berlin, Germany.

The Baltic Offshore Wind Forum is an important initiative to promote the importance of the debate on offshore wind energy and energy security. This high-level event will bring together key stakeholders from governments, the private sector, and civil society from all CBSS member states to discuss energy security in the context of Europe’s changing geopolitical landscape.

With current Germany’s CBSS Presidency prioritizing the promotion of offshore wind energy, the forum is an important initiative to give a strong boost to Baltic offshore wind energy while supporting the shared regional goal of achieving climate neutrality by 2050. The forum will be hosted by Annalena Baerbock, Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany, and Lars Løkke Rasmussen, Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Denmark.

Discussions will center around critical issues related to energy and security policies, such as up-scaling offshore wind energy, and further development of an integrated renewable energy system in the Baltic Sea Region.

The forum will take place at the German Federal Foreign Office in Berlin, followed by an evening reception hosted by the Royal Danish Embassy. Interested parties are encouraged to register to attend the forum by 10 April 2023, as places are limited.

For those unable to attend in person, the German Energy Agency (dena) will broadcast the forum digitally via Zoom.
