Energinet.dk to Invest Some DKK 5-7 Billion in Baltic Pipe Gas Project
Jun 6 17
Denmark and Poland estimate the Baltic Pipe gas project will cost ca. DKK 12-16 billion (or some EUR 1.6-2.15 billion) with Energinet to invest some DKK 5-7 billion. Energinet and its Polish counterpart Gaz-System expect the pipeline will be launched in October 2022.
TenneT TSO B.V., Energinet.dk and TenneT TSO GmbH to Sign an Agreement in Brussels on Developing Large Renewable European Electricity System in the North Sea
Mar 10 17
TenneT TSO B.V., Energinet.dk and TenneT TSO GmbH will sign an agreement in Brussels on March 23, 2017 that will press ahead on developing a large renewable European electricity system in the North Sea. TenneT unveiled its vision of the North Sea Wind Power Hub in June 2016. The close cooperation with Energinet.dk is an important next step towards accomplishing this vision and the 2050 climate goals formulated in the Paris Agreement (COP21). Discussions with other potential partners are ongoing, which not only include other North Sea transmission system operators (TSOs), but also other (infrastructure) companies. The goal is to achieve a multi-party consortium which will realize the North Sea Wind Power Hub project. By developing the North Sea Wind Power Hub, TenneT and Energinet.dk want to make the energy transition both feasible and affordable. Central to the plan is the construction of one or more islands, so called Power Link Islands with interconnections to surrounding countries, in the middle of the North Sea (Dogger Bank): to which many wind farms can be connected (possibly 70,000 MW to 100,000 MW); from where the generated wind energy can be distributed and transmitted over direct current lines to the North Sea countries of the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Great Britain, Norway and Belgium; where transmission cables will simultaneously function as interconnectors between the energy markets of the aforementioned countries. Besides transmitting wind electricity to the connected countries, these 'wind connectors' will enable the countries to trade electricity; where wind conditions are optimal. Solar energy and wind energy will be necessary on a large scale because achievement of the European targets for reducing CO2 emissions hinges largely on electricity produced sustainably. Wind and solar energy complement each other: there is more sun from spring to autumn, and more wind in the colder and darker months of the year. So a sustainable and stable energy system for the future will need solar and wind energy, both on a large scale. This requires optimum cooperation and synergy because it cannot be accomplished by individual member states on their own. The European political declaration of 6 June 2016 on energy cooperation between the North Sea countries was an important step in this direction. The vision of the three TSOs provides a basis, or point of departure, for a joint European approach up to 2050 and focuses specifically on developing the North Sea as a source of and a distribution centre for Europe's energy transition. The location of the Power Link (the island) should satisfy a number of requirements: optimal wind conditions, centrally located and in relatively shallow water. As a location for the island, the Dogger Bank meets all the conditions.
