The project „Integrated Baltic Offshore Wind Electricity Grid Development (Baltic InteGrid)”, initiated by the Foundation for Sustainable Energy has been approved for financing as one of 35 project in the first call of the INTERREG Baltic Sea Region Programme.
The project consortium consists of 14 organisations from 8 countries from the Baltic Sea Region (Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Poland). Poland will be represented by the Foundation for Sustainable Energy together with the Maritime Institute in Gdańsk.
The main objective of the project is to develop a concept of a Baltic Offshore Grid integrated with planned offshore wind farms, which will be based on detail analyses of spatial, market, political, regulatory, social, environmental and technical conditions.
The project also foresees development of feasibility studies for selected parts of the Baltic Offshore Grid. One of the feasibility studies will include Polish maritime areas and planned marine transmission infrastructure which will be used to connect planned offshore wind farms and establish interconnections with Sweden, Denmark and/or Germany.
