When it comes to renewable energy, Denmark is a true pioneer. From 3% in 1980, Denmark’s share of renewable energy rose to nearly 40% in 2019. In 1979 we were the first nation worldwide to install a wind turbine and still are the world leader in wind power today.
Together, two Danish-born companies, MHI Vestas and Siemens Gamesa, provide one third of the world’s wind energy. Quite impressive for such a small country, right?
Currently, a giant offshore park is being constructed on the Danish island Møn. When opened in 2022 it will produce enough electricity to power 600,000 households – simply amazing!
