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.

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.
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.
The Danish Energy Agency and the Vietnamese Electricity and Renewable Energy Authority (EREA) will cooperate on mapping the potential for offshore wind in Vietnam. A potential that is one of the highest in South East Asia, according to the Danish Energy Agency.
The International Energy Agency’s (IEA) market analysis and forecast on renewable energy for 2019 was released today. After growth in capacity stalled in 2018, additions are set to rise this year, primarily due to solar PV and to a lesser extent, onshore wind.
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.
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.
