Denmark has been a pioneer in developing commercial wind power both on and offshore, and has currently the highest proportion of wind power in the world. The Danish wind power industry has benefited from close collaboration between public-financed research and the private industry in key areas such as certification, testing and developing of standards during the past decade.
Private: Danish Biomass
After a significant rise in the use of biomass during the prior two decades, bioenergy has become the most widely used renewable energy source in Denmark, with bioenergy accounting for 64% of the consumption of renewable energy, with wood biomass alone accounting for 48%. Bioenergy as a whole plays an integral part in the Danish green transition, and has been essential in pressing down the share of power production from fossil fuels from 66% to 20% during the last decade.
