Denmark sets new record sourcing 47% of power from wind in 2019

COPENHAGEN, Jan 2 (Reuters) - Denmark sourced close to half its electricity consumption from wind power last year, a new record for the Nordic country and an important step in realizing one of the world’s most ambitious climate targets.

Wind accounted for 47% of Denmark’s power usage last year, up from 41% in 2018 and beating a previous record of 43% in 2017, the country’s grid operator Energinet said on Thursday.
