Renewable energy in Denmark continues to grow
This is an example for all the people who say they “can not”. The renewable energy consumption increased 2.5% in Denmark in 2001, this thanks to large investments have been made in the field of Wind Energy production.
According to the calculation method of the European Union, 23.6% of Denmark’s energy consumption came from renewable sources, even more incredible, 40.7% of that energy was intended for home consumption. Of this total, wind power accounted for 28.1%.
The more traditional production fell 6.4% in 2011, bringing this production almost to the same levels as they had in 1990. Another interesting fact is that CO2 emissions caused by energy consumption in 2011 fell 10.6% which equates to 44.3 million tonnes.
Finally, Denmark is the only European Union country self-sufficient in energy production in 2011 was 110% of its energy needs by 2010 and 121%
