Windmill island

Denmark is considering the construction of an artificial island for offshore wind that could produce 10GW of capacity.

The Danish energy ministry has greenlighted the plans for a network of islands that could cost up to £33.8bn, with private investors covering most of that cost.

The first island alone could power 10 million homes and add substantially to Denmark’s wind energy that currently provides 41 per cent of its electricity demand - the highest level in Europe.

Denmark recently passed legislation that would take it to the front of European nations in terms of reaching net-zero, and it ability to harness wind energy inspected to be used beyond domestic supply and harnesses to create other forms of storage energy, such as hydrogen for transport
