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.

Denmark’s newest offshore wind farm, Horns Rev 3, will produce enough renewable energy to cover the electricity consumption of 425,000 households. The inauguration of the country’s largest offshore wind farm to date will help fulfil Denmark’s objective of becoming carbon neutral by 2050.
The international North Sea Wind Power Hub consortium has completed the first evaluation phase of determining how large capacities required to generate energy from renewable sources in the North Sea region can be achieved at the lowest possible environmental impact and cost. The results reveal that a series of smaller energy islands are the most effective solution and can make a substantial impact on achieving the Paris Agreement and EU Climate goals.
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.
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.
