Europe News Desk!! Solar panels and wind turbines set a new green record of 21.2 terawatts per hour of electricity in Denmark in 2022, a 22 percent increase from 2021. This was reported by the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI), the Department of Energy. In Denmark, solar cells and wind turbines have never produced as much electricity as 2022, DI Energy’s industry director Troels Ranis said in a statement. Citing data from the Danish Energy Agency, DI said wind turbines could generate 19 terawatts of electricity in 2022 and solar photovoltaics 2.2 terawatts, Xinhua news agency reported.
In 2021, solar and wind power together could generate 17.3 terawatts. Not only do wind turbines and solar cells produce cheap and green electricity for consumers in Denmark, they also contribute to the green transition in Europe, Ranis said. This is a big win. He said Denmark will export more energy and import less in 2022 than a year ago. According to DI Energy, the industry will generate enough green electricity to power 5.3 million homes in 2022, up from about one million in 2021. It is a beacon of hope for the future, Ranis said. If we are to have enough green energy to supply increased consumption by 2030, this would require a fivefold increase in current electricity generation from renewable energy sources.
