Webinar: Energy Islands
24. March 2022, 10:00 - 11:00
Event registration is closed.
Energy Islands could be an important contribution towards a net-zero future. Join our webinar to learn about the Danish plans for energy islands, what energy islands could look like in a Norwegian context and what the possibilities could be for the offshore industry.
Several countries are looking towards energy islands to meet the growing needs for clean energy. Denmark is currently planning the construction of two energy islands to serve as hubs that can create better connections between energy generated from offshore wind and the energy systems in the region around the islands.
The two energy islands are to be completed in 2030 and will be able to supply 5GW of power – enough to meet the average electricity consumption of 5 million households.
Join our webinar to learn more about the Danish plans and timeline for energy islands, what energy islands could look like in a Norwegian context, the work on hybrid connections and meshed grids in the North Sea and what the possibilities could be for the Norwegian offshore industry.
