Shortly after Denmark declared that it would stop its search for oil and gas in the North Sea, it announced plans for an artificial island that will produce green energy.
The Scandinavian country has committed, by law, to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 70% by 2030.
The proposed energy island will link to off-shore wind turbines and will also generate green hydrogen. It is expected to power 3 million homes and multiple industries.
“This is truly a great moment for Denmark and for the global green transition,” Energy Minister Dan Jorgensen told a press briefing.
Adding: “(The island) will make a big contribution to the realisation of the enormous potential for European offshore wind.”
