Development in the offshore industry
The Dutch offshore market has become more and more committed to the development of sustainable alternatives. Companies that have traditionally grown from the exploitation of fossil fuels are now more committed to the creation of wind and water energy. The industry has already created a lot of employment for the shipbuilding and its suppliers. Germany, on the other hand, has become a significant player for Offshore Wind.
On the coastline and on land, many windmill parks are being created, hoping that in 2020 a minimum of 35 percent of electricity will be produced from sustainable resources. Hamburg has been named the offshore wind capital of Europe.
