  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    DEA, the Danish Energy Agency (Energistyrelsen, ENS in Danish), under the supervision of the Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate, is in charge of energy policy and planning in as far as the supply, production, consumption and efficiency of energy are...

  • Energy Supply


    Denmark's gas production halved between 2008 (10 bcm) and 2014 (4.6 bcm) and has remained roughly stable since then (4.5 bcm in 2016); it doubled between 1995 and 2005, reaching 10.5 bcm, and remained roughly stable until 2008.

    Production still exceeds the country's needs and the surplus...

  • Energy Prices


    Residential gas prices in Denmark have been declining since 2013 and are now in line with the EU average (28% in 2013). The share of taxes is high (60% for households in 2016), but lower for industry (31%): Danish industrial gas prices are 6% below the EU average.

  • 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 declined 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 consumption...

  • 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...
