Denmark is well known for its successful integration of wind power. The share of wind has risen steadily over the last decades and and Denmark now has the world’s highest share of wind in it’s electricity mix. Combined with biomass, a quarter of the country’s electricity production is renewable.
The home-market for wind turbines, combined with supportive policies and R&D support, has helped Denmark become a world leader in wind power technology.
Coal still accounts for almost half of electricity production, with significant use of natural gas. The Danish government however, has committed to decarbonising the electricity mix in the coming decades.
