High in renewable energy
Clean energy is a Danish passion. Today, 50% of electricity in Denmark is supplied by wind and solar power.
Wind energy is well-established in Denmark, which long ago decided to put the Danish climate’s constant breezes and blusters to practical use. Now Denmark produces almost twice as much wind energy per capita as the runner-up among industrialized countries in the OECD.
But you may be surprised to hear that wind energy isn’t the most widely used renewable energy source in Denmark. First place belongs to bioenergy, followed by wind, solar and geothermal energy.
Denmark has a target of a 70 percent reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030 (compared to 1990 levels) and 100 percent climate neutrality by 2050.
