Welcome to Dogger Island: an artificial island in the North Sea that could supply 80 million people in Europe with renewable energy by 2050.

Europe plans to build an artificial island, with a port and an airport, designed to serve as a hub for large offshore wind farms that will provide renewable energy to 80 million people.

The island of 6.5 square kilometers, would collect energy from thousands of new wind turbines who want to settle at sea.

Germany is working with the Netherlands and Denmark to plan and build the new island that will provide electricity to countries in northwestern Europe.

The island would be linked to the UK, Norway, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark and Belgium.

It would be built at Dogger Bank in the North Sea.

The island should have solar farms to generate maximum power. It will also have a port and airstrip for easy access.

Reports indicate the project will be complicatedFor example, the construction of the foundations of the artificial island will cost around 1.35 billion euros, according to initial estimates.

A project that seems a little crazy but, if carried out, could lower the cost of wind power produced at sea.
