Wind power capacity in Denmark increased by 275 MW in 2017, bringing the total to 5,521 MW. The country installed 373 MW of new turbines—including 28 MW of new offshore wind (4 turbines)—and 98 MW were dismantled.
In 2017, 32% of Denmark’s energy consumption came from renewable sources: 40% from oil, 15% from natural gas, 9% from coal, 2% from nonrenewable waste, and 2% from imported electricity. Wind-generated electricity met 43.4% of the domestic electricity supply (compared to 37.6% in 2016). The wind energy index was 102.3, compared to 90.2 in 2016.
Recently, Denmark has focused on repowering land-based turbines, constructing four new large offshore wind farms, and developing new research test facilities.
