A long-term shift or shortage of the habitats of many species can only be prevented through targeted climate protection. That is why we must do everything we can to achieve the Paris climate goals - together. Of course, the construction of offshore wind farms is an intervention in the marine environment. Nonetheless, offshore wind energy is essential to ensure a long-term, secure, cost-effective and sustainable energy supply for Germany and Europe and to protect our climate. The operators of offshore wind farms take extensive preventive measures in order to guarantee a nature-friendly expansion of offshore wind energy.
