Total Energy consumption

Denmark's consumption per capita is roughly in line with the EU average at 2.9 toe/cap, and around 5 500 kWh/cap of electricity in 2016.

Total energy consumption has been declining by 3.8%/year between 2010 and 2015. In 2016, it grew by 3.8% to 16.7 Mtoe, due to a 21% increase in coal...

Crude oil production

Oil production has been on a downward trend since 2004, decreasing by an average of 8.2%/year until 2016, when it reached 6.9 Mt (-10% in 2016 alone).

Oil production took off in the eighties and tripled between 1990 and 2000, reaching 18 Mt in 2000. It then remained stable at around 18-19...

Renewable in % electricity production

According to the 2012 Energy Agreement, Denmark aims to more than double its wind power generation to half of electricity consumption and raise the share of renewables to more than 35% of final energy consumption in 2020. In 2015, Denmark already covered nearly 31% of its final energy...
