The alliance has clearly defined its goal of providing a substantial contribution to the future energy mix by developing innovations for renewable offshore wind energy in Germany and Europe. In particular the alliance faces those many challenges that have to be overcome economically developing sites for offshore wind parks with great coastal distance and water depths of more than 40 meters combined with difficult soil conditions.

A major share of the funding is coming from the federal support program "Unternehmen Region", the innovation initiative for the "New Federal States" of Germany. For 2016 the federal government plans an increase of the annual funds by 10 million euro to a total of 159 million euro. The Alliance is well positioned in the attractive growth market for renewable energy, in particular offshore wind energy and is pursuing the goal of ensuring long-term sustainable economic development by leveraging innovation potential and strengthening cooperation between the alliance partners.
