Are energy islands the future of renewables?
Proposals to combine renewable energy streams on purpose built islands are becoming more and more common place.
Just last week, a new plan was revealed for an integrated energy scheme in the North Sea which would combine 200 floating wind turbines and hydrogen production.
The £10bn project – proposed by floating offshore wind company Cerulean Winds – would have the capacity to abate 20M.t of CO2 through simultaneous North Sea projects west of Shetland and in the central North Sea.
These energy islands can create better connections between energy generated from offshore wind and energy systems in nearby regions. So amid the drive to net zero, are they the future of the industry?
