The report, voted on by MEPs in response to a European Commission communication, stresses that meeting the 2030 and 2050 targets requires faster deployment of Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE), but maritime space and coasts must be managed more sustainably.

In a report passed on Wednesday, with 518 votes in favor, 88 against and 85 abstentions, the European Parliament (Strasbourg, France) warned community commitments to reduce greenhouse gases run the risk of not being accomplished.

“The offshore renewable energy strategy is key to the green transition, where time is of the essence. We need lots of green electricity to fulfil our climate objectives and the offshore renewable energy strategy is absolutely essential in this regard”, said lead MEP Morten Petersen (Renew, DK).

MEPs highlighted the significance of shortening procedures to get a permit and call on the member states to set up a transparent process and consider introducing time limits for issuing permits where necessary.
