Submission + - Artificial energy storage island in the North-Sea (

bmcage writes: Belgium wants to build within 5 years an artificial [dutch] energy storage island ([Google Translate]). The island will store excess energy produced at night from the offshore wind farms already present in the North-Sea.

As a small country with no hydropower possibilities, moving from nuclear to offshore wind farms, this is an innovative way to store the excess production. Is it really feasible however? Silting could be a problem.
