To harvest wind energy efficiently, Denmark is constructing two energy islands. The energy islands will serve as offshore hubs, collecting and transmitting wind energy to Denmark and other European countries by several interconnectors installed on the hub. At a later stage, PtX-plants will be installed reducing transmission capacity needs. The ambition is to construct one 3 GW island in the North Sea expandable to 10 GW and one in the Baltic Sea as well. Both can be considered 100% inverter-based power systems designed from a blank sheet of paper. This presentation will cover the power system design considerations and technologies enabling the hubs.
