This white paper takes you through all the elements of the success story of wind energy in Denmark. From the starting point and what we now consider small-scale wind turbines to the projects and technologies that push the bar and the ambitions for wind energy as a source of renewable energy. We hope you will be inspired.

As the first country in the world, Denmark has decided to lead the transition and become entirely independent of fossil fuels by 2050. One element in reaching this target is to expand the share of renewable energy harnessed from wind, and this encompasses driving the development of an intelligent energy system capable of managing the fluctuations of renewable energy.

Denmark was the first country to install a commercial offshore wind farm 30 years ago and has been first mover in the wind industry for decades. In 2016, onshore and offshore wind turbines provided around 40% of Denmark’s electricity consumption and we plan to go further with over 50% of electricity consumption to be generated by wind energy by 2021.
