The European Union has recently announced the selection of four innovative cross-border renewable energy projects for funding under the 2023 CEF Energy call. With an overwhelming response of requests totaling EUR 1.02 million, this initiative showcases a strong commitment to advancing sustainable energy solutions across member states. The projects, spanning various sectors including offshore wind, green hydrogen, and solar PV, involve collaboration among five EU countries: Portugal, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, and Poland. Each project aims to assess feasibility and prepare for implementation to accelerate the region’s energy transition.

Project Highlights

The first project, Madoqua Green Fuels Terminal Lda, located at the Port of Sines in Portugal, plans to establish a green fuel storage and bunkering terminal powered by solar PV installations. This project aims to bolster large-scale deployment of renewable energy, producing green methanol, biogenic CO2, and green ammonia for export to Northwestern Europe.

Next, the Cross-border Pomeranian Green Hydrogen Cluster focuses on creating a cluster integrating wind and photovoltaic sites with electrolysers and pipeline installations. It aims to connect renewable power and hydrogen production facilities directly to consumers.

The third project involves cross-border cooperation on a potential offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea, proposed in the Danish part of the Baltic Sea and connected to the German electricity grid. This project will conduct feasibility studies and regulatory assessments for an offshore radial wind farm.

Lastly, the Hanseatic Wind project explores a potential offshore wind farm in the North Sea, investigating connectivity via a high voltage direct current (HVDC) hybrid interconnection. It aims to optimize renewable energy integration across Germany and Scotland.
