EU appoints co-ordinator for offshore wind grid connection

The EU has appointed a co-ordinator to help facilitate connection of offshore wind power into European grids, reported the European Commission's Wolfgang Kerner, speaking at Offshore Wind 2007. The job has gone to German civil servant Georg Wilhelm Adamowitsch. He is one of four high level co-ordinators appointed to speed four interconnection projects under the EU's priority interconnection plan outlined in the March 2007 energy and climate change package. Adamowitsch was originally appointed to oversee connection of offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea, but his remit has been widened to take in countries around the North Sea, taking in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands, said Kerner. An urgent challenge for Adamowitsch will be to promote a Europe-wide approach to the integration of wind generated power into the continental grid, said Kerner.
