The Centre for Green Transition and Marine Ecology works to provide clarifications and material for detailed environmental assessments before the construction of offshore wind farms. Among others, we are involved in the following large-scale projects:
Denmark will be the first country in the world to develop two energy islands with a capacity that takes into account a grid connection of a total of 5 GW of offshore wind. One of the islands is to be located in the North Sea with an installed capacity of 3 GW of offshore wind around the island. The island can be further scaled up and thus allow for a grid connection of up to 10 GW of offshore wind. The project name is "Energy Island – North Sea" and is expected to be fully operational in 2033.
Offshore Low-trophic Aquaculture in Multi-Use scenario Realisation will demonstrate and promote multi-use low trophic aquaculture (MU-LTA) in both low and high salinity offshore waters, bringing together state-of-the- art practices in MU-LTA and key industry partners, achieving at least TRL7 and paving the way for a low- impact and low-carbon seafood industry.
