The energy company and one of the leading offshore wind developers has invited start-ups, scale-ups, research institutes, as well as other individuals and organisations to propose an innovative solution in one of the three domains.

In the field of ecology, RWE is seeking new concepts that would contribute to a net positive effect on biodiversity at the company’s new offshore wind farm sites.

For the circularity domain, RWE would welcome innovative solutions that contribute to increasing circularity and minimising waste during the entire lifetime of an offshore wind farm.

And in the field of system integration, RWE is looking for innovative offshore solutions that enhance system flexibility or minimise curtailment.
