About us

The Offshore Coalition consists of 18 organisations from across Europe, bringing together NGOs, TSOs and the wind industry. Together we want to work towards a sustainable development of offshore energy infrastructure that protects our marine ecosystems.

The Coalition will provide an open forum for discussion, where existing information and experiences are assessed and collated, needs for further research are identified and suggestions are made on how to improve planning offshore wind development for the European seas.

The Renewables Grid Initiative acts as the convener and moderator of the group as well as being a founding member.

How we work

The Coalition is organised into three topical working groups:

  1. Data for planning offshore wind development
  2. Marine Spatial Planning
  3. Impacts of infrastructure on marine ecosystems and stakeholder engagement.

Stay tuned for our work plan for the year 2021.
