Site Development Plan

Central site development and preliminary investigation

The year 2017 marked a system change in the field of offshore wind energy. Since then, the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) has been responsible for the development and preliminary investigation of areas for the construction and operation of offshore wind energy on the basis of the Wind Energy at Sea Act (WindSeeG) in an overall planning process.

The so-called central model describes a successive planning and tendering process. In the first step, the areas for offshore wind energy are defined spatially and temporally in the Site Development Plan (FEP). The next step is the preliminary investigation of the areas defined in the FEP. After the preliminary investigation has been carried out, the areas are auctioned off in a competitive procedure by the Federal Network Agency by making the results of the preliminary investigation available to the bidders. The bidder who has been awarded a contract can erect wind turbines on the site after passing the approval procedure, is entitled to the market premium and may use the connection capacity of the offshore grid connection.

Latest news on the Site Development Plan 2019

The Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) has issued the Site Development Plan 2019 in accordance with §§ 4ff. WindSeeG on 28 June 2019. The Site Development Plan determines areas for offshore wind turbines for the period 2026 until at least 2030 (year of commissioning of wind turbines).

The scope of application of the FEP relates primarily to the German exclusive economic zone of the North Sea and Baltic Sea. On the basis of an administrative agreement between BSH and the federal state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, it also determines sectoral stipulations for the territorial sea.

Further information on the national consultation can be found here. The spatial specifications of the Site Development Plan are also published as a web feature service in the GeoSeaPortal.

The international consultation on the draft of the Site Development Plan and the drafts of the environmental reports was launched at the end of January 2019. Authorities and the public in the countries bordering the North Sea and the Baltic Sea had the opportunity to comment on the draft documents by 25 March 2019.

The comments and statements from this consultation can be found in the original language and the German translation here:
