Onshore wind energy is the cheapest source of energy in Denmark – outcompeting any fossil fuel
Denmark is home to 4.4 GW onshore wind energy and as the cost of the technology has dropped drastically, wind turbines are a highly cost-efficient way to produce electricity. In fact, onshore wind energy is the cheapest source of energy in Denmark, and in many other parts of the world – outcompeting any fossil fuel. As wind turbines have an expected lifespan of approximately 20-25 years, many onshore wind farms in Denmark are currently undergoing repowering to replace retiring turbines. However, onshore wind turbines are continuously growing more and more efficient, which means that the total number of onshore turbines is expected to drop by about 50 per cent in the next decade while their total energy production is expected to more than double in the same period.
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.

Wind and solar energy make up 50 per cent of Denmark’s total electricity production. But now Denmark is even closer to creating a fossil-free society with the opening of Thorup-Sletten – a 77 MW onshore wind farm located in Northern Jutland. The park is set to generate power for 65,000 households.
This year, Spica Technology celebrates the 5-year anniversary on the lifetime extension project of the 10 Wind World W5200 750 kW turbines in Nauen wind farm for wpd windmanager GmbH – all still running successfully with the Spica Retrofit Controller.
On a small island in Denmark, green energy solutions are being developed. The transition is ambitious but necessary, both when it comes to the overall sustainability of the island as well as for the future success of a green Denmark. Besides the energy project which includes two wind turbines from Viking Wind, there is a […]
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 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.
Onshore wind energy development company, WindSpace, has sold one of the world’s first commercial wind farms (Björkvattnet) with a capacity of an astonishing 175 MW, equivalent to the average power consumption of 175,000 households. General Electric’s (GE) 5.3 MW Cypress turbines will generate the power set to supply Google’s datacentres as a part of their plan to invest more than 2 billion USD in new energy infrastructure.
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.
