Denmark is planning to build the world's first wind energy island in the North Sea, to produce enough green electricity for 3 million European households.

The island, which will be the size of 18 football fields initially, will be linked to 200 offshore wind turbines, from which it will store and distribute energy.

The electricity will power ships, planes, industry and heavy transport, as well as homes.
