Together with CMS Netherlands, Bech-Bruun has published the article Guide to offshore wind in Nothern Europe.
Bech-Bruun partners Per Hemmer and Peter Østergaard Nielsen have contributed with the chapter about Denmark.
Since the oil crisis in the early 1970s the Danish energy system has become increasingly more reliant on renewable energy sources. From 2008 to 2014, the total generation from central power stations (coal and gas) and local combined heat and power has declined from 80% to 55%. In the same period, the proportion of wind power in total electricity generation has increased from 20% to around 43%. In the EU in 2014, Denmark had by far the highest share of wind power in its gross final electricity consumption.
