German companies present themselves at CeBIT
as a technology leader on the way to the gigabit society. But when it comes to broadband, Germany is lagging: in terms of download speed, it is ranked 26th in the world, behind most industrialised nations and even behind Bulgaria and Romania. Although DSL availability is excellent, only 7.1% of German households have access to genuine fibre optic connections (FTTH/B: Fibre to the Home/Building).
A study commissioned by Ørsted Offshore Wind, published as DIW Berlin -Politikberatung kompakt 136.
The expansion of offshore wind energy is a strategic component of Germany’s energy and climate policy. Therefore, according to the targets of the German government, 15,000 MW of offshore wind energy capacity should be available in Germany by 2030. Suppose offshore wind energy is to make a successful contribution to the transformation of energy systems. In that case, it will be necessary not only to build offshore wind farms but also to transport the electricity produced efficiently on land.
