1st seminar of the Thematic Working Group
Environment and Society
within the Baltic InteGrid Project
Warsaw, 28th February, 2017
Foundation for Sustainable Energy (FNEZ) will organize first seminar of the thematic working group environment and society within the Baltic InteGrid project financing from INTERREG Baltic Sea Region 2014 – 2020. The seminar, apart from project partners and associated organizations, will be dedicated for representatives of maritime administration, regional and national environmental authorities, investors, experts and other stakeholders interested in environment and social issues related to offshore energy investments.
The aim of the thematic working group is to discuss impacts of offshore grid infrastructure on the environment, other sea users and society. Together we will attempt to identify most important impacts of the offshore grid concept on the Baltic Sea and tools and technics for successful communication and mitigation of conflicts.
The conclusions of the Thematic Working Group seminar will be used in the development of the “Impact mitigation strategy of the Baltic Offshore Grid” which is one of the outputs of the Project and which will be incorporated in the Baltic Offshore Grid concept.
Please note, that the discussions in the seminar will be conducted in English and no translation services are foreseen.
If you are interested in participation in the Thematic Working Group, we would kindly ask you to contact with Magdalena Karlikowska (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The main objective of the Baltic InteGrid project is to develop a concept of the Baltic Offshore Grid integrated with planned offshore wind farms. It will be based on a detail analysis of spatial, market, political, regulatory, social, environmental and technical conditions.
The overall objective of the Baltic InteGrid is to contribute to sustainable indigenous electricity generation, further integration of electricity markets, and security of supply in the BSR by applying the meshed grid approach to optimize the potential and efficiency of OWE. To this end, during the project lifetime, 14 project partners from all 8 EU Member States from the BSR (Poland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia) will work in close cooperation with key stakeholders towards delivering project’s main outputs:
