Do Energy Islands support the Green Transition?
Energy islands are an emerging concept in the Nordic countries and predominantly in Denmark. They represent the idea of constructing large wind farms far out in the sea and placing energy conversion and storage technology such as electrolysers, ammonia production, and batteries nearby. The concept is novel to the sector and delivers a perspective on post-fossil fuel large-scale energy supply. This article is based on Lüth (2022) and related research, and it reflects and highlights the insights that are of relevance for the development of the Danish energy islands.
