Partner Testimonial – Schleswig-Holstein

13 March 2019 - Published by Anne Katrine Arentsen

Schleswig-Holstein is the northernmost of the 16 states of Germany, situated between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, with a population of approx. 2.8 mio. We are leading the way for the energy transition and have relied on the development of renewable energies for more than two decades. As of today, a share of more than 150 percent of the gross electricity consumption in 2017 was generated from renewable energy sources. In total, Schleswig-Holstein has over 200 companies and associations involved in the wind energy business.

Northern Connections - our partnership 
Northern Connections allow and help us to share experience, knowledge and to learn from each other. Added by enhanced inspiration for innovation and transnational cooperation in the energy sector (with a particular view regarding living labs). Both of which supporting efforts of the Schleswig-Holstein State Government to establish reliable energy cluster management structures within Schleswig-Holstein in the upcoming EU funding period 2021-2027. Further benefit will be to establish reliable cooperation structures with partners beyond immediate cross-border cooperation as well as in the whole North Sea Region.
