Wind power generates all Denmark's electricity demand –13th July
Denmark meets all of its electricity needs from wind, with plenty to spare for Germany, Norway and Sweden too. Due to high winds on Thursday the country was able to meet its domestic electricity demand and was able to export surplus to Norway, Germany and Sweden.
Oliver Joy, a spokesman for the trade body the European Wind Energy Association commented that “It shows that a world powered 100% by renewable energy is no fantasy…Wind energy and renewables can be a solution to decarbonisation – and also security of supply at times of high demand.”
Around three-quarters of Denmark’s wind capacity comes from onshore windfarms, which have strong government backing.
