50 per cent wind power in Denmark in 2025

In spring 2007, Ea Energy Analyses, in cooperation with the energy company SEAS-NVE, carried out a number of analyses for the Danish Wind Industry Association aimed at quantifying costs and benefits of increasing wind power capacity in Denmark to a production volume corresponding to 50 per cent of Danish electricity consumption in 2025.

 

Two scenarios of the future development of the electricity and combined heat and power sectors in Denmark and in our neighbouring countries were analysed: One scenario, in which the increase in wind power capacity in Denmark takes place on market terms, and another scenario where the increase in wind power is determined by a political objective of gradually increasing wind power to produce an amount of electricity corresponding to 50 per cent of the Danish electricity consumption in 2025. The analyses were made using, among other things, the electricity market model Balmorel.

 

The analyses include calculations of infrastructure costs, environmental gains and other economic conditions. It is also examined how 50 per cent wind power can be handled in the Nordic electricity market and how it will affect security of supply, and Danish framework conditions for wind power investments are described.
