New lines have been drawn on Denmark's maritime charts in connection with an offshore wind site screening, initiated by the country's energy policy ratified last year to clarify the potential for offshore wind in Danish waters. That survey shows a potential for at least 40 GW in new offshore wind capacity, and the most recent screening identifies sites suitable for 12.4 GW, informs Denmark's Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate on Friday.
"Denmark is already a major wind power nation, and this site survey shows that we have the potential for even more. Our wind conditions are so favorable for offshore wind that we could contribute even more green electricity – not just in Denmark, but also to many other countries," says Minister of Energy, Utilities and Climate Lars Christian Lilleholt (Liberal Party).
