Tech Talk: Designing the Danish energy islands #2 – Stable and resilient hub design

29. februar 2024 – 10:00 – 11:00 Online

Within the next decade, energy islands and energy hubs are planned to be built in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. These energy hubs are key to Denmarks ambition of reaching the national energy and climate targets. Furthermore, such infrastructure projects will bring Denmark to the center-stage of energy supply to the rest of Europe by contributing renewable energy to the region.

From a pure financial viewpoint, such huge infrastructure projects are the largest in Danish history with budget of over DKK 210 billion.

In order to get there, new solutions and strategies to ensure stable and cost-effective operations of the energy islands are needed. This is what the innovation project Offshore Energy Hubs focuses on. In this project, partners are striving to develop technical solutions addressing several aspects of the energy hubs, which will be conveyed via a series of webinars:

  1. Solutions enhancing operational stability and thereby security of the energy supply (Watch/re-watch the webinar HERE)
  2. Improving cost-efficiency in the design of wind power plants
  3. Hub-optimized offshore Power-to-X

In this webinar, the initial results delivered for stable and resilient hub design with focus on feasibility assessment of different hub topologies (AC, DC and Hybrid) will be presented. The agenda for the webinar is as follows:

  • Background of Stable and Resilient design for the Offshore Energy Islands
  • Feasibility Criteria for different Hub Topologies
  • Overview of Hub Topologies and System Layout
  • Results
