Denmark plans the construction of two big energy islands to meet 2030 climate target
Denmark, who has committed to become carbon neutral by 2050, is planning to build two huge
“energy islands” totalling 4GW of offshore wind capacity (2GW each). This to reduce emissions by
70% in a decade and double the nation’s current offshore wind capacity.
The project, which needs to be approved by the parliament, aims to generate more electricity than
Danish households’ annual consumption and it is likely that the country will export its green power
to neighbouring European countries as well.
According to the experts, one energy hub will be built on an artificial island in the North Sea the
second on the Danish island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea.
