€10 Billion of Investment in Renewables will See Denmark 90% Fossil Free by 2030

The increase in electricity generation from renewables is expected to come primarily from the expansion of wind power and conversion of power plants to substitute wooden pellets as a primary fuel. In 2015, the share of fossil fuels in electricity generated was 33%; with 8% forecast by 2030. Wind power accounted for 41.5% of the electricity generation in 2015.

It is projected that the share would increase to approximately 60% by 2025. Investments of around $2.8 billion are expected for new offshore wind developments in the country with new capacity additions of 1.4 GW expected to come online by 2021. Denmark has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by more than 30% since 1990. With current measures in place, it is estimated that emissions will be approximately 40% lower by 2020 - surpassing Denmark’s EU commitment of 34%.
