Before building energy islands and associated offshore wind farms in the North Sea or the Baltic Sea, Energinet must ensure that the impact on the existing environment in the areas will be as small as possible. Energinet is therefore already conducting preliminary studies of flora, fauna, the seabed and many other factors in the designated areas.

Facts
  • The environment and nature studies are expected to start in autumn 2021.
  • Factors will be investigated separately for the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, as the conditions are different.
  • The geophysical conditions in the North Sea are currently being mapped. The seabed and soil layers are being examined, with the aim of describing how foundations for wind turbines and the like can be established with minimal environmental impact.
