  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    DEA, the Danish Energy Agency (Energistyrelsen, ENS in Danish), under the supervision of the Ministry of Energy, Supply and Climate, is in charge of energy policy and planning in as far as the supply, production, consumption and efficiency of energy are concerned. The Agency prepares and implements the sector's legislation and ensures the concrete implementation of the governmental energy ...

  • Energy Companies


    The Danish Energy Association (Dansk Energi) groups together electricity companies.

  • Energy Supply


    The country's hydrocarbon resources are mainly located in the North Sea. Oil reserves are estimated at 60 Mt and gas reserves at 72 bcm (end of 2018).

  • Energy Prices


    Because of high taxes (70% of final price in 2018), the residential electricity price is the highest in Europe at more than €37c/kWh. Residential prices have increased at a slower pace than the EU average (+1.8%/year from 2000 to 2017, compared to +3.3%/year in the EU): they are now 42% above the EU average, compared to 84% in 2000.

    Taxes on industrial electricity prices are lower ...

  • Energy Consumption

    Denmark's consumption per capita is slightly lower than the EU average at 3 toe/cap (-6.5%) and around 5 600 kWh/cap of electricity in 2017.

    Total energy consumption, which increased by 2.7%/year between 2015 and 2017 (17 Mtoe), is estimated to have remained stable (+0.2%) in 2018. It was stable at around 19 Mtoe between 2000 and 2010, but declined by 3.7%/year between 2010 and ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    According to DEA's 2017 forecasts, primary energy consumption is expected to decline until 2020 due to energy efficiency improvements, lower demand for fossil fuels from the power sector, and the rapid expansion of offshore wind. Energy consumption should recover between 2020 and 2030 due to fewer energy efficiency improvements, a halt in the installation of new wind power capacity, and ...
