Denmark

All of Denmark’s power needs were met by a combination of onshore and offshore wind energy for a 24-hour period  last week.

Figures released by the award-winning Wind Europe organisation showed Denmark produced 70 GWh via onshore and 27 GWh from offshore wind on Wednesday 23 February. Enough to meet its entire needs.

It is the equivalent of powering 10 million household in the European Union. Wind power accounts for around a fifth of the EU’s electricity needs.
