*340억 불 짜리 덴마크 에너지섬 건설 프로젝트 VIDEO: Denmark to build 'first energy island' in North Sea

Denmark to build 'first energy island' in North Sea

A project to build a giant island providing enough energy for three million households has been given the green light by Denmark's politicians.

 

The world's first energy island will be as big as 18 football pitches (120,000sq m), but there are hopes to make it three times that size.

   세계 최초의 에너지섬은 축구 18개(12만㎡)나 되겠지만 그 3배 크기로 만들 수 있다는 기대가 있다.

이 에너지섬은 200개의 거대한 해상 풍력 터빈의 허브 역할을 할 것이다.

 

덴마크 역사상 가장 큰 건설 프로젝트로서, 약 210억 크로네르 (£240억; €28억: $340억)의 비용이 소요되었다.

 

 

해상까지 80km 떨어진 곳에 위치한 이 인공섬은 적어도 국가가 절반 이상 소유하지만 일부는 민간이 소유하게 될 것이다.

 

그것은 덴마크인들에게만 전기를 공급하는 것이 아니라 이웃 나라들의 전력망에도 공급할 것이다. 아직 자세한 내용은 알려지지 않았지만, 덴마크 공과대학의 제이콥 오스트르가드 교수는 BBC와의 인터뷰에서 영국이 독일이나 네덜란드뿐만 아니라 혜택을 받을 수 있다고 말했다. 녹색 수소는 또한 해운, 항공, 산업 및 중운수에도 사용될 것이다

 

덴마크의 기후법에 따라, 국가는 2030년까지 1990년 온실가스 배출량을 70% 감축하고, 2050년까지 이산화탄소 중립화를 야심차게 약속했다. 지난 12월 그것은 북해의 모든 새로운 석유와 가스 탐사를 중단한다고 발표했다.

 

에너지부 장관 Dan Jorgensen은 이 나라가 단순히 "지도를 바꾸고 있다"고 말했다.

It will serve as a hub for 200 giant offshore wind turbines.

 

It is the biggest construction project in Danish history, costing an estimated 210bn kroner (£24bn; €28bn: $34bn).

 

Situated 80km (50 miles) out to sea, the artificial island would be at least half-owned by the state but partly by the private sector.

 

It will not just supply electricity for Danes but for other, neighbouring countries' electricity grids too. Although those countries have not yet been detailed, Prof Jacob Ostergaard of the Technical University of Denmark told the BBC that the UK could benefit, as well as Germany or the Netherlands. Green hydrogen would also be provided for use in shipping, aviation, industry and heavy transport.

 

Under Denmark's Climate Act, the country has committed to an ambitious 70% reduction in 1990 greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, and to becoming CO2 neutral by 2050. Last December it announced it was ending all new oil and gas exploration in the North Sea.

 

Energy Minister Dan Jorgensen said the country was simply "changing the map".

 

"This is gigantic," Prof Ostergaard told the BBC. "It's the next big step for the Danish wind turbine industry. We were leading on land, then we took the step offshore and now we are taking the step with energy islands, so it'll keep the Danish industry in a pioneering position."

 

The plan is for the island to grow from an initial 120,000 sq m in size to 460,000 sq m

 


 

Green group Dansk Energi said that while the "dream was on the way to becoming a reality" it doubted the North Sea island would be up and running by the planned 2033 start date.

 

But Danish politicians across the spectrum have given their backing to the plan. Former energy minister Rasmus Helveg Petersen of the Social Liberal party said energy islands had begun "as a radical vision" but there was now a broad agreement to turn it into a reality.

 

A smaller energy island is already being planned off Bornholm in the Baltic Sea, to the east of mainland Denmark. Agreements have already been signed for electricity to be provided from there to Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.

 

Last November the European Union announced plans for a 25-fold increase in offshore wind capacity by 2050, with a five-fold increase by 2030. Renewable energy provides around a third of the bloc's current electricity needs:

 

 

According to the EU, offshore wind supplies a current level of 12 gigawatts

Denmark supplies 1.7 gigawatts

The new island would supply an initial 3 gigawatts, rising to 10 over time

The smaller Bornholm energy island would provide 2 gigawatts

 

 

While there is some secrecy over where the new island will be built, it is known that it will be 80km into the North Sea. Danish TV said that a Danish Energy Agency study last year had marked two areas west of the Jutland coast and that both had a relatively shallow sea depth of 26-27m.
