Island in Europe will provide clean energy to 80 million people. Incredible!

Europe is planning to build an island, complete with harbor and airport, designed to act as a hub for vast new offshore wind farms supplying clean energy to 80 million people.

The 2.5 square mile (6.5 square km) island would collect energy from thousands of new wind turbines in the sea.

Germany is working with the Netherlands and Denmark to plan and build the new island which will supply energy to countries in northwest Europe.

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

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

The island is expected to have solar farms to generate maximum energy. It will also have a harbor and airstrip for easy access.

Reports indicate that the undertaking will be massive and building the foundations of the artificial island will cost around 1.35 billion euros (1.45 billion dollars), according to first estimates.
