The Plan for Program Bornholm Energy Island sets the framework for the future Energy Island at Bornholm and the adjacent coastal areas. Bornholm Energy Island will consist of an offshore wind farm south of Bornholm, as well as high-voltage installations on Bornholm and Zealand. The energy island will have a capacity of up to 3.8 GW.

Based on a strategic environmental assessment of the plan and consultation responses received, the Danish Energy Agency has assessed that it is possible to adopt the Plan for Program Bornholm Energy Island. In the process, the agency has adjusted the planning areas to accommodate environmental issues and planning restrictions in the area, such as bird protection areas, defence areas, and ship traffic routes.

As part of the process, the Danish Energy Agency held a number of public meetings in 2021, 2022, and 2023 in connection with consultation periods. During these meetings, the public, stakeholders, and authorities submitted ideas, proposals, concerns, and asked questions about the draft plan and the environmental assessment.

The plan sets the overall framework for future construction projects for Bornholm Energy Island. The plan alone does not allow for the construction of facilities.

In parallel with the Danish Energy Agency's planning and environmental assessment process, Energinet, which is the developer of Bornholm Energy Island’s onshore facilities, is carrying out an environmental assessment for the facilities on Zealand and Bornholm, as well as submarine cables between the two station facilities. The Danish Energy Agency is currently preparing the upcoming tender for offshore wind for Bornholm Energy Island.
