Europe: Denmark will build the world's first "Energy Island"

Denmark will build world's first "Energy Island"
Denmark affirmed an arrangement on Thursday to construct a counterfeit island for energy creation. The North Sea island will deliver and store sufficient efficient power energy to cover the power needs of 3,000,000 European families.


Recently the Danish government has approved a project to build the world's first energy island in the North Sea, which will produce and store enough green energy to meet the electricity requirements of three million homes in European countries. The Hub will strengthen the integration of Europe's electricity grids and increase the renewable electricity generation required for climate-neutral Europe.


About the Hub:


The energy hub will serve as an offshore power plant and will distribute green electricity directly to consumers in countries around the North Sea from wind turbines around the island. It is a long-term desire to be able to store green electricity on the island, convert it to liquid green fuel, and send it to Denmark and neighboring countries via subsea-cable.


Facts about Energy Island:


  • The expansion of the artificial island project, for example, would provide the best opportunities for the construction and storage facilities of a port and the conversion of green electricity from nearby wind turbines into the sea.
  • This giant island of the first type will be as large as 18 football pitches (120,000 square meters).
  • A broad coalition of Danish parties has decided to set up two energy hubs and associated offshore windfarms. As an artificial island in the North Sea and on a Danish island in Bornholm.
  • An energy center acts as a hub that collects electricity from the surrounding offshore windfarm and distributes power between the connected countries via the power grid.
  • In addition, the abundance of offshore wind energy can be used to produce climate-friendly fuel for shipping, aviation, heavy industries, or heavy-duty vehicles.
  • The initial capacity of both hubs will be 5 GW which will triple the current installed offshore capacity in Denmark. These will later be expanded to provide a total capacity of 12 GW.
  • The deal also established the final phase-out date of fossil extraction by 2050 and formulated plans for the proper transition of affected workers.
  • Denmark is currently the largest producer of oil in the EU and is the largest producer to have ever established a final phase-out worldwide.
