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.

Infranode, a Nordic infrastructure fund, has partnered up with the municipally owned Danish Port Esbjerg to invest up to one billion Danish kroner (approx. EUR 134 million) into new port infrastructure facilities for the wind turbine industry in the port. The project could create thousands of green jobs in Esbjerg and the rest of Denmark.
Danish wind technology and know-how is internationally sought-after as more countries are looking towards a green energy transition. Inspiration for a stronger wind energy sector is an important reason for Latvia’s Prime Minister to visit Denmark.
An international Ocean Renewable Energy Action Coalition that includes Danish actors such as Ørsted and MHI Vestas has been formed to advance sustainable deployment of ocean-based renewable energy and mitigate the harmful impacts of climate change.
In the Danish region of Lolland, consumers and producers of electricity will soon be paid for turning the power up or down. The new experiment will solve the problem that local electricity grids have with the amount of renewable energy and can be a game changer for the rest of Europe, too.
The EU Commission’s big goals for offshore wind – between 230 and 450 GW by 2050 – are achievable provided the right investments in electricity grids and Governments take the right approach to maritime spatial planning.
Under the theme of ‘Our energy, our future’, Copenhagen is hosting the WindEurope Offshore 2019 congress, which sets the role of offshore wind energy in decarbonising Europe in the spotlight. Nine thousand guests and 450 exhibitors will visit the Danish capital this week as part of the event.
All 174 wind turbines have now been installed at the world’s largest offshore wind farm Hornsea 1. When operational, Hornsea 1 will be almost twice the size of the world’s largest wind farm to date – the Walney Extension – and capable of powering well over one million UK homes with renewable electricity.
Today, Permanent Secretary of the Danish Ministry for Climate, Energy and Utilities, Morten Bæk, participated at the launch of the Vietnam Energy Outlook Report in Hanoi, Vietnam. The report holds solutions to how Vietnam can reduce the country’s CO₂ emissions by millions of tonnes and create a green and sustainable energy system.
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.
In Thisted Municipality we have two national Test Centers and development is also taking place within biogas and solar energy. Large Wind Turbines In 2012 the National Test Center for Large Wind Turbines, Oesterild, was opened. It has a capacity of 7 test benches for wind turbines with a height up to 250m. For more […]
