Energy Islands – the key to harvest huge amounts of wind power

Hanne Storm Edlefsen
Vice President of the Energy Islands, Energinet


The Energy Islands will change the way we talk about harvesting wind energy. They will allow us to go much further out at sea and harvest far more power than previously known. However, the Energy Islands are a complicated matter, especially on the technological front. We have never quite done something like this in this type of scale, which means we need innovation in order to succeed. There are many questions to be answered.  I will try to give my best estimate on what type of technological challenges we need to overcome to enable the success of the Energy Islands, but also what the future Energy Islands may look like.
