A Dutch company called TenneT has proposed a large scale project that might completely transform how wind farms produce renewable energy. The Guardian reports that TenneT has proposed building an entire island in the North Sea, about 78 miles off the coast of East Yorkshire in the United Kingdom. The island would serve as a hub for the turbines in the ocean, with an enormous cable connecting it to the UK, the Netherlands, and eventually expanding to power Belgium, Germany, and Denmark.

The proposal is intended as a solution to land that can support windfarms filling up along the coast, and would theoretically make this energy source considerable cheaper in the area.
