In recent years plans of building wind power parks at sea has taken off in Sweden and internationally. Wind power is a renewable and emission-free alternative for producing electricity and is pivotal to switch to a fossil-free society and can help fulfill several of the national environmental objectives.
The area planned for a wind power park Njord is located in the Baltic proper, about 30 km south of Öland. It has the potential to produce about 6450 GWh per year which corresponds to the household electricity consumption of about 1,2 million homes.
