The Christmas tree in the Danish Energy Agency's (DEA) foyer was being decorated Wednesday morning, while outside the building sleet fell from the skies, requiring a high degree of Yuletide spirit to be interpreted as snow – a spirit that only RWE could really muster in the end when the German power company was declared the tender's winner, thereby granted rights to build Thor, the DEA officially announces Wednesday afternoon.
"For the first time ever, the state must be paid for authorization to establish an offshore wind farm. The competitive price in the tender is even more impressive because, for the first time, the winner bidder will also have to pay for the landing cables and grid connection. This is very promising for future tendering procedures for offshore wind energy and for the green transition,” writes DEA Director General Kristoffer Böttzauw in a statement.
