About this book

The accompanying ecological research for using wind energy in the German North and Baltic Seas is part of a series of research projects in the German Government's Investment Programme for the Future. Offshore Wind Energy has brought out a variety of results about possible effects on the marine environment. Offshore Wind Energy provides an overview of the state of the accompanying ecological research in Germany. The main objective of Offshore Wind Energy is to show the relevance of the new results of these research projects for the planning and permission process for offshore wind energy plants.
