Denmark is on pole to build the first artificial energy island in the North Sea, but other nations are looking at the radical option to enable massive offshore.

The energy islands are also being suggested as potential hosts for offshore wind-powered green hydrogen production and repositories of battery storage.

Frontrunner Denmark

Denmark, which pioneered the world’s first offshore wind farm 30 years ago, is now on pole position to build the the first artificial energy island globally.

The Danish Energy Agency (DEA) has said that it plans to start the tendering process for an island some 80km off Denmark’s Jutland peninsula next year, and will likely announce the winning bid in early 2023. Join me at the Energy Island Professionals Group

What are the ideal geographic characteristics for such energy islands? It seems like these projects tend to be talked about all in the Norht Sea-- is that just because of being further along in the offshore wind journey, or are there other factors at play?

North Sea is relatively close to a lot of high-density population centers (London, Paris, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Hamburg)
