Wind power generated a record 140% of Denmark’s electricity needs one day this autumn.


This enabled the country to export surplus energy to neighbours including Germany, Norway and Sweden.

Data shows that Denmark generated 116% of its electricity needs from wind turbines,  and that by 3am one Friday morning the figure had increased to 140%.  80% of the power surplus has been shared between Germany and Norway, while Sweden took about a fifth of the excess power.
