Introduction to the North Sea Energy Island
Denmark has taken the first steps towards creating an energy island in the North Sea, with a target initial capacity of 3 GW, later to be expanded to 10 GW. With an ambition to strengthen our ties within energy cooperation, the Danish Energy Agency, the Danish TSO Energinet and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands provide this introduction to the Energy Island project. Through your participation, you will get insight into the scope; the tendering and market dialogue process; ambitions for international cooperation; TSO perspectives, and future North Sea developments as well as an opportunity to ask questions directly to the project owners.
In 2020, a broad political majority in the Danish Parliament voted for the realization of two energy islands; one expanding the capacity of the island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea, and one as an artificial island in the North Sea. During this webinar, the Danish Energy Agency, the Danish TSO Energinet and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands aim to provide an introduction to the plans and process for the development of the energy island in the North Sea. The webinar will give a good overview of the project, of ways to get involved, and of the perspectives on the future and cooperation in the North Sea.

Denmark and the Netherlands share the ambition of increased cooperation in the energy transition. In 2020, our countries signed a Memorandum of Understanding on energy cooperation, aiming to connect our agencies, knowledge institutions, and industries. With this as background and as common neighbours to the North Sea, this webinar should provide you with a good overview of the Danish ambitions in this area.
The project is the first of its kind in the North Sea and would have an initial capacity of 3 GW, with a potential of later expansion to 10 GW. Denmark will have majority ownership in collaboration with private actors, with the intention of facilitating private competencies with regard to project development, technology, and finance, and contribute to innovation and green export.
