Despite economic expansion during the past two decades, Denmark has been able to prevent a marked rise in total energy consumption. This partly reflects increased energy efficiency and the declining share of economic activity accounted for by energy-intensive industries.

Denmark has a very ambitious climate and energy policy. The Economist Intelligence Unit expects that the share of renewables in energy consumption will increase during the forecast period (2018-22). The share of coal in total energy consumption is also expected to increase over the forecast period, while the share of petroleum products and natural gas will decrease. Wind power in particular will drive the growth of renewables in Denmark's energy system, which will become less fossil-fuel intensive by 2022.

There will be a slight increase in the country's energy consumption during the forecast period, with higher gains offset by increased efficiency in the electricity and district heating sectors. Relatively slow increases in energy consumption and growth in renewables generation mean that the share of fossil fuels in power generation will continue to be squeezed.
