Estimate of installed and operating wind power capacity based on the latest statisitics and measured against the Windpower Intelligence database.
Denmark sourced just under half (47%) of its electricity consumption from wind power in 2019, due in part to cost reductions and improvements in offshore technology.
Wind will continue to play an increasingly important role in the energy transition, as Denmark looks to become fossil fuels-free by 2050.
With a mature onshore sector, much of the focus for wind power will be offshore.
The Danish Energy Agency seeks to be a "one-stop-shop” for developers and is actively promoting the development of a number of large offshore projects by 2030, in addition to nearshore capacity.
