TenneT, the largest operator of electricity grids in Germany and the Netherlands IPO-TTH.AS, said offshore wind from North Sea turbines had represented a 15.6% share of Germany’s total wind power production of 73.7 TWh in the fist half of 2020.
Its German North Sea, connection capacity currently amounts to 7,132 megawatts (MW) and is due to rise to 17,000 MW by 2030.
Meanwhile, in the German North Sea, the maximum infeed performance of offshore wind farms in the first half of 2020 was 6,035 MW on 2 January. The capacity expansion of the offshore wind farms in the German North Sea brought this up to 6,679 MW by 30 June 2020.
The wind turbines in the Baltic Sea (50 Hertz grid area) generated 2.22 TWh in the first half of 2020, making Germany’s total offshore yield 13.73 terawatt hours during this period. With an additional 59.67TWh of generated onshore wind energy, the total yield is thus 73.7 TWh.
