    Europe Building Wind For A Continent

    North Sea Wind Power Hub: A giant wind farm to power all of north Europe Coming up: 100GW mega wind farms on synthetic islands in the middle of the North Sea.

    William Steel, May 18, 2017 (Ar Technica)

    “The harnessing of energy has never been without projects of monolithic scale. From the Hoover Dam to the Three Gorges Dam…[engineers] have recognised that with size comes advantages…The trend is clear within the wind power industry too, where the tallest wind turbines now tower up to 220m, with rotors spinning through an area greater than that of the London Eye, generating electricity for wind farms that can power whole cities…[An unprecedented plan from electricity grid operators in the Netherlands, Germany, and Denmark aims to rewrite the rulebook on offshore wind development…[They are planning to] build an artificial island in the middle of the North Sea to serve as a cost-saving base of operations for thousands of wind turbines, while at the same time doubling up as a hub that connects the electricity grids of countries bordering the North Sea, including the UK…In time, more islands may be built too; daisy chained via underwater cables to create a super-sized array of wind farms tapping some of best wind resources in the world…” click here for more
