A good news for innovation and environment comes from Denmark, pioneer in the sector

of renewable energy. A team of British designers and artists have proposed a floating

tourist attraction that would gather solar energy in Copenhagen Harbor as the Danish

city works to become carbon-neutral by the year 2025. And this flosting attraction is a giant


That’s right! A giant sea duck could power Copenaghen with renewable energy! Human

mind can do wonderful things sometimes.


Built from lightweight steel and covered in solar panels, the “energy duck” would by

day collect the sun’s rays and by night bask the harbor in LED lights that change color

in rhythm with the hydro turbines inside it. Based on its modelling, in its entirety, the

energy yield of the generator would be 75% of a fully optimized solar farm on the same

site. additionally, ‘energy duck’ has been conceived to be completely scalable depending

on the situation: a 40m high duck serves a town; a 20m high duck serves a village, and a

4m high duck serves an individual house.

It can be a very, very visited tourist attraction and also a giant renewable energy hybrid

generator. It could represent a big step forward in the energy sector but most of all: it’s a

sea duck!
