Denmark’s largest offshore wind farm approved by EU

“The Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm will help to cut carbon dioxide emissions, while the support is carefully designed to avoid distorting competition in electricity markets,” Vestager said. Kriegers Flak will be located in Danish waters in the Baltic Sea and will be able to supply 600,000 Danish households (23 percent) with renewable energy. The EU will support the construction of the wind farm with 1.1 billion kroner, which should be used by 2021. Additionally, a new interconnector will be established between the Danish island of Zealand and Germany via Kriegers Flak and two German offshore wind farms. Swedish energy company Vattenfall won the tender to build the Danish wind farm in 2016. (Copenhagen Post)
