Approval the construction of the world’s first energy artificial island.A project to supply electricity to 3 million families in Denmark has been approved. The world’s first ‘energy island’ of its kind will be the equivalent of 18 football fields. But it is hoped that its size could be tripled. 200 giant wind turbines will be installed on the island. It is the largest project in Denmark’s history. And is estimated to cost 34 billion.
The island, which will be built at sea 80 km. And half by private companies. This unique power generation project. Will not only meet Denmark’s electricity needs. But also sell electricity to neighboring countries.

“It’s a big project,” said Professor Oster Gard. This is a major step forward in the Danish wind turbine industry. We were at the forefront of installing wind turbines on land. Then we installed beach and wind turbines. And now we are going to build an energy island. Therefore, it will be at the forefront of Denmark’s power generation industry.
Green Group Dask Energy an NGO working on the environment. This dream is going to be a sham. But it is doubtful that the project will start by 2033. Leaders of all political parties. In Denmark have supported the plan.
Former Energy Minister Ramos Helog Petersen. Has said that the idea of creating energy. Is revolutionary and that there is now a broad consensus that it should be made a reality. There are plans to build a small energy island. East of Denmark in the Baltic Sea near Borholm.
supply electricity from the island to Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. Last November the European Union announced that the production of electricity. And set a target of five-fold increase by 2030.
At present, one-third of the EU’s energy needs. But it is common knowledge that it will be built in the North Atlantic Ocean. 80 kilometers off the coast of Denmark.
