Europe has a bold plan to meet it's future energy needs... to build artificial islands dedicated solely to wind power.

Northern Europe would be the perfect place for such a project as the area is frequented by strong wind.

While still in the planning stage, the island would act as a power hub at the center of a vast new wind farm, at a scale that hasn’t been seen anywhere else on Earth.

There would be a turbine setup with a generating capacity of between 70,000 and 100,000 megawatts, the island would channel this energy through direct live cable connections to the countries surrounding the sea.
