Smart Grid Strategy

The intelligent energy system of the future


The energy agreement of 2012 established broad political support for an ambitious green transition which among other things means significant expansion of the Danish wind turbine capacity. As a result, in 2020, wind power will cover half of Danish electricity consumption and it is expected that a relatively large percentage of overall Danish energy consumption, including for transport  and heating, will be electricity-based up to 2020. This is a challenge for the current electricity system. We are used to regulating electricity production according to customers’ consumer patterns,
but large amounts of wind power, and an increasing amount of solar energy, require more flexible electricity consumption. Therefore, the parties decided to draw up a strategy for the smart electricity grid. Read the report here
