The North Sea energy island will connect and distribute power from the surrounding offshore wind farms. The island will have a minimum capacity of 3 GW offshore wind, with potential for expansion to 10 GW.

In the Baltic Sea, the electro technical equipment will be placed on the island of Bornholm, where electricity from offshore wind farms will be routed to electricity grids on Zealand and neighboring countries. The offshore wind farms will have a capacity of 2GW.

This seminar will discuss the perspectives and opportunities also in an international context.
