The European Commission published the Wind Power Package in October. Fifteen direct actions that ensure that the competitiveness of the European wind value chain can be strengthened. The European Commission and the European Investment Bank have already delivered their part of the package. But most of the actions fall under national governments.
That is why the energy ministers from 26 EU Member States, including the Belgian Minister of Energy Tinne Van der Straeten, expressed their support on Tuesday, December 19, 2023, encouraging their countries to implement the actions they have been given under the charter. Also 300 companies and organizations from the wind sector, including the Belgian Offshore Platform, signed this charter.
This support sends a clear signal that wind energy produced in Europe provides a great added value and that the European wind industry needs strengthening.
