On June 20th-21st, the second partner meeting of the Baltic InteGrid („Integrated Baltic Offshore Wind Electricity Grid Development” funded under the INTERREG Baltic Sea Region in 2014-2020) took place in Roskilde, Denmark.
At the invitation of the Technical University of Demark (DTU) and Institute for Climate Protection, Energy and Mobility (IKEM), the Foundation for Sustainable Energy (FNEZ) participated in the project works related to the elaboration of a concept for the integration of the offshore infrastructure on the Baltic Sea. During the meeting all partners presented their achievements and current results of the project. Since the first partner meeting in Berlin, the project activities have done a great progress. Thanks to the involvement of all partners, the first drafts of the condition analysis of the Baltic Sea Grid has been elaborated.
FNEZ and all partners still face many challenges, but there are many indications that the project’s future results will bring benefits to the Polish economy as well as energy sector. The next partner meeting and first experts meeting in working group will be held in October.
The main objective of the project Baltic InteGrid 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. As being a second project partner FNEZ is, inter alia, responsible for: identifying a list of a potential impacts of the Baltic Offshore Grid on the environment and society, elaborating the „Impact mitigation strategy of the Baltic Offshore Grid,” and preparing the prefeasibility study for the case study of an interconnection between Poland and Sweden.
