A Global Wind Power Hot Spot  

Benefit from a Danish Wind Power Cluster that comprises world leading players like Vestas, Siemens Wind Power, Envision ABB and LM Windpower.

Wind power in Denmark – research and smart grid solutions

Denmark has a long tradition of exploiting wind power. With striking research results during the last 25 years, more than 40% of today’s Danish electricity consumption is produced by means of wind power, and the goal is to reach 50% by 2020.

Denmark is a world leader in wind power

More that 20% of the world’s wind turbines were supplied by Danish-based companies in 2012 and approx. 75% of the world’s offshore wind turbines are either Danish produced or have Danish developed foundations and components. Throughout the value chain companies are conducting technology development in Denmark. Offshore developers, turbine manufacturers, system suppliers, offshore specialists, research institutions and test centers are all part of the innovative value chain of the Danish cluster thriving at making wind power better and more cost-efficient.

Top 5 reasons for placing wind power activities in Denmark

  • Access to a complete value chain of suppliers and professional services
  • Access to a highly qualified and experienced talent pool – 30,000 people employed in the wind power sector
  • Access to universities, research and test centers with cutting edge know-how and extensive experience in collaborating with the industry. Access to offshore wind developers and a transparent offshore market.
  • The ambitious Danish energy strategy makes Denmark a highly transparent market with excellent opportunities for testing of new solutions onshore and offshore.
