Elia presents its plans for an energy island, which will be called the Princess Elisabeth Island – 3/10/22

In the presence of federal ministers Tinne Van der Straeten (Energy) and Vincent Van Quickenborne (North Sea), system operator Elia has presented its draft plans for what will be the world’s first artificial energy island.

Belgium’s Maritime Spatial Plan (2020-2026) provides for the development of a new wind power production zone in the Belgian part of the North Sea: the Princess Elisabeth Zone. 

In line with the Belgian Electricity Act, Elia is responsible for extending the transmission grid based plans that must be approved by appropriate ministers. The draft plans for the first energy island are now ready and the tender process is being prepared.
