Delta21 is a current project in development and has a major emphasis on sustainable energy practices. The artificial island is located in Zuid-Holland, the Netherlands and has already been discussed on publications if this might be the island of the sustainable future for its innovative take on natural energy. The project will be a coastal protection, nature project and energy storage.
The 20 km sq lake will produce its own electricity via surplus water from on site turbines. The project idea is to turn nature into energy for people, whilst performing under sustainable and nature conservation energy methods.
Support from this project includes TU Delt, University of Wageningen, DEME and Van Oord.
