Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners
In Copenhagen, the Danish parliament reports it has approved plans for the world's first two energy island "hubs" and a 1GW North Sea offshore wind farm as included in the government's new climate plan . Technology-specific onshore wind and solar PV tenders for the project would be held in 2020 and 2021.
According to Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) the energy islands could be completed without government funding due to investors' -- Pension Danmark, PFA and SEAS-NVE -- expressed €50 million combined interest in the project.
Denmark plans to source 100 pct of its electric power from renewable energy by 2027, and to reduce emissions by 70 pct by 2030 from a 1990 baseline. (Source: WindPower, Various Trade Media, 22 June, 2020)
