More than just an island
Climate change requires new and ambitious solutions – like the world’s first artificial energy island, which will soon be established in the North Sea, approximately 100km off the coast of Denmark. Surrounded by 10 offshore wind farms, the energy island will use the strong North Sea winds to collect and distribute huge amounts of green energy to Denmark, and into Europe. The energy island will play a key role in helping Europe phase out fossil fuels, accelerating the green transformation.
We’re at the cutting edge of a pioneering development of the Danish energy system in which we scale renewable energy to a completely new level. The energy island will enable a paradigm shift in the green transformation – with Denmark as a pioneer.

Supporting both climate and nature – now and in the future
Our vision is to build an island fit for all future possibilities to increase wind power generation, whilst making it possible to integrate new technologies and forms of energy. We’ll build the island according to the best sustainable construction principles combined with due consideration for its natural surroundings.
