The wind resource over Denmark was mapped in 1999 by EMD International A/S and Risø National Laboratory.
Denmark was a pioneer in developing commercial wind power during the 1970s, and today a substantial share of the wind turbines around the world are produced by Danish manufacturers such as Vestas and Siemens Wind Power along with many component suppliers.
There have been no major problems from wind variability, although there is a temporary problem resulting from the connection of a large bloc of wind power from offshore wind farms to a single point on a weak section of the transmission network.
Denmark adopted a target of cutting carbon emissions by 22% from 1988 levels by 2005.
Denmark has relatively modest average wind speeds in the range of 4.9–5.6 m/s measured at 10 m height.
Renewable energy became the natural choice for Denmark, decreasing both dependence on other countries for energy and global warming pollution.
Many countries tried to subsidize green technology such as wind power, and most failed to make a viable industry.
