Marine plans and projects

The North Sea and the Baltic Sea are increasingly subject to commercial exploitation for offshore wind farms and their grid connections, undersea cables, pipelines and resource extraction. Permission for such activities is granted subject to compliance with laws on protected areas, species conservation, habitat conservation and impact mitigation.

The agencies involved submit documentation to BfN, which as the competent nature conservation authority reviews plans and projects with regard to nature conservation law and states its opinion.
