Fanciful?  No  - two of these are already consented.

Danes-unveil-vision-world’s-first-artificial-energy-island. The island would be linked to an initial 3GW of offshore wind capacity, which over time could be expanded to a staggering 10GW.

The artificial island is expected to host energy storage, 'power-to-x' facilities such as hydrogen, as well as accommodation, O&M facilities, and HVDC converters for transmission and interconnectors.

Interesting potential solution to concerns about taking up land with these types of projects, and there's certainly an efficiency optimization to having them all connected right next to each other in such a way to minimize transmission infrastructure (not to mention transmission losses)

The Energy Central Power Industry Network is based on one core idea - power industry professionals helping each other and advancing the industry by sharing and learning from each other.

If you have an experience or insight to share or have learned something from a conference or seminar, your peers and colleagues on Energy Central want to hear about it. It's also easy to share a link to an article you've liked or an industry resource that you think would be helpful.
