Onshore wind energy is the cheapest source of energy in Denmark – outcompeting any fossil fuel
Denmark is home to 4,2 GW onshore wind energy and as the cost of the technology has dropped drastically, wind turbines prove a very cost-efficient way to produce electricity. In fact, onshore wind energy is the cheapest source of energy in Denmark – outcompeting any fossil fuel. As wind turbines have an expected lifespan of approximately 20 years, many onshore wind turbines in Denmark are currently being retired. As a result, the number of onshore turbines is expected to drop in the coming years, but the wind farms stay in place, as the old turbines in many cases are replaced with new, more efficient ones in repowering projects.
We invite you to explore onshore wind energy related solutions in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest news and discover real-life case examples of how onshore wind can help solve your energy issues.

The price of onshore wind turbines and solar parks is now so low that it suggests that they are close to becoming subsidy free. The result of this year’s so-called technology neutral tender, where onshore wind and solar installations compete for subsidies, has, for the second consecutive year, resulted in historically low levels of support. The subsidy rate decreased by approximately 30 per cent in comparison to last year’s rates.
Spica Technology offers a customised N50 Retrofit solution to extend the life span of ageing Nordex N50 800kW wind turbines. The N50 Retrofit solution is the Spica Retrofit Controller with Spica Control System integrated in a special designed nacelle panel fitted for the Nordex N50 nacelle.
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.
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.
Electric power has tremendous potential, given the possibility to use it as a fuel source in transport, heating and industry. It can play a central role in reducing the planet’s CO2 emissions, thereby achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement. These are the key messages of the Renewable Energy Outlook 2019, that was released in Copenhagen this week.
