As a first-mover in offshore wind energy, Denmark commissioned its first offshore wind farm in 1991
Harnessing the energy of wind offshore is more expensive than onshore due to both the preliminary expenses such as installation of foundations, more extensive safety measures and larger maintenance costs. However, the trade-off is much better and more stable wind resources and fewer concerns in relation to neighbours. As a first-mover in offshore wind energy, Denmark commissioned its first offshore wind farm in 1991 and today, the sector contains both technologies and service aimed at all phases of an offshore wind energy project.
We invite you to explore offshore wind energy related solutions in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest wind energy news and discover real-life case examples of how wind technology can help solve your energy issues.

Within the coming three decades, sun and wind will gain even bigger traction and possibly account for half of the world’s electricity, predicts research-centre. Denmark has a head start on the transition to renewables.
For 10 days earlier this month, the Danish island of Bornholm was on its own in terms of electricity supply, as the submarine cable to Sweden’s power grid was disconnected. That was a very interesting situation for researchers, who are investigating the ability of electric vehicles to stabilise the power grid.
Danish companies are taking part in the booming offshore wind adventure in the United States – an adventure that, together with growing environmental concerns outside Washington, might lead the United States to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Realising the vision of an artificial North Sea energy island surrounded by offshore wind turbines will be enabled through a new project led by the Technical University of Denmark in cooperation with the Confederation of Danish Industry and domestic TSO Energinet.
Denmark has signed an expansion of the existing energy collaboration between Turkey and Denmark, which means that the Danish Energy Agency now launches a new government cooperation with a focus on offshore wind. Since 2017, the Danish Energy Agency has supported the green transition in the heating sector in Turkey, who now also wish to benefit from Danish experience in the offshore wind sector.
The state of New York aims to become a hub for the burgeoning offshore wind industry in the US. Recognising that this must be accompanied by strong port infrastructure and tangible benefits for the local community in which it operates, such as growth and job creation, the state is harnessing Danish expertise to ensure their ambitious visions become a sustainable reality.
In this paper, you will meet the ten partners behind the Tours Network and find inspiration for site visits across energy efficiency, renewables, waste and resource management, clean air, water and climate adaptation.
If you are interested in visiting Denmark to explore these solutions and learn more about the concrete technologies, as well as connect with Danish stakeholders and share knowledge about green growth development, we encourage you to contact the Tours Network.
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.
