ENERGY ISLANDS IN DENMARK

Denmark is establishing the world’s first energy islands, marking the beginning of a new era for large-scale offshore wind power. The two energy islands are to be completed in 2030, and will be able to supply 5 GW of power.

This is enough to meet the average electricity consumption of 5 million households. 

In June 2020, the Danish Folketing decided to begin preparations for the construction of two energy islands in Denmark – in the North Sea and in the Baltic Sea. The energy island on Bornholm will have a capacity of 2 GW, while the one in the North Sea will have a capacity of 3 GW in 2030, and 10 GW in the longer term.
