Nuclear Power

Denmark imports but does not produce nuclear energy, which is in accordance with a 1985 law passed by the Danish parliament, prohibiting power production

Hydro Power

Denmark. Has only three hydropower plants, powering 3000 homes, accounting for less than 0.1% of its total electricity production. Denmark is geographically small and relatively flat with no rivers suitable for hydropower. Imports most of its hydroelectricity from Sweden and Norway.

Wind Power

Wind energy is well-established in Denmark, which long ago decided to put the Danish climate’s constant breezes and blusters to practical use. Now Denmark produces almost twice as much wind energy per capita as the runner-up among industrialized countries in the OECD. But you may be surprised to hear that wind energy isn’t the most widely used renewable energy source in Denmark. The first place actually belongs to bioenergy, followed by wind, solar and geothermal energy.

Solar Power

In Denmark solar power is used in two different ways: Solar panels, which are used to heat up buildings and to produce district heating, and solar cells, which are used to produce electricity. Like other forms of renewable energy, solar power can contribute to making Denmark independent of fossil fuels by 2050.
