An island that future-proofs both climate and nature
The North Sea Energy Island is not an ordinary island. We’re creating a new way of collecting and distributing green power, with the island serving as a hub in a network consisting of 10 surrounding offshore wind farms and with links to foreign countries. It’s the first time in history that an artificial island will be constructed to supply renewable energy to several countries.
The North Sea Energy Island must be more than just an island. The Danish energy island should promote new standards for the build-out of offshore wind power in Europe, while being based on sustainable construction and design. Most importantly, it must be prepared to meet future needs.

Right from the start, the island must be ready for a yet unknown technological future. The island must be adaptable and be further developed in its design and layout, in-line with the connection of offshore wind power and the development of new green energy technologies. It will be an island in constant development, so that we never run out of room for innovation.
