As announced at the end of March, by 2030, the US government under President Joe Biden wants to have supplied more than ten million households with environmentally-friendly electricity by building wind farms along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. The aim is to produce 30 GW (30 billion Watts) of wind power. In order to achieve this goal, an investment of over twelve billion dollars (EUR 10.2 billion) is necessary. Denmark is also relying on offshore wind power for the long term. That is why parliament decided in February this year to build a huge, artificial energy island in the middle of the North Sea. The largest construction project in the history of this country, with costs of around 25 billion EUR and a planned capacity of 10 GW (10 billion Watts) wind power, is intended to act as a European hub for the surrounding offshore wind farms and make a sustainable contribution to the implementation of the EU’s climate targets.
