A Personal Perspective on the Development of Offshore Wind Energy and the Baltic InteGrid Project
The project Baltic InteGrid brings together a large number of partners with different organisational backgrounds (e.g. universities, research institutes, companies, NGOs, etc.) and engaged individuals from all around the world. The lead partner of the consortium, the Institute for Climate Protection, Energy and Mobility (IKEM) contributes to the project with its research on the challenges and opportunities of a meshed offshore grid in the Baltic Sea. One of the researchers is Elizabeth Côté, a Bioresource Engineering graduate from Canada. On the InfoRegio website of the EU Commission (DG Regional and Urban Policy) you can find out how Elizabeth came from working in one of the most ecologically harmful fossil fuel industries to promoting offshore wind energy in the Baltic Sea Region.
