Specifically, the two additional wind projects will have 800MW each and will enable Denmark to produce its total energy via renewable sources by 2030.

Along with the two projects, there will be 8.200 new jobs created, according to local media.


The political party highlighted that the projects will not need government subsidies, citing a trend of declining costs within the industry.

In addition, the two wind projects will also help Denmark accomplish its fossil-free status in 2045, five years earlier than originally planned.

In 2018, the Danish parliament unanimously voted in favour of a new energy agreement which includes building three new offshore wind projects by 2030 with a total capacity of at least 2.4GW.

The first of those three projects is the Thor offshore wind farm located off Nissum Fjord in the Danish North Sea. The wind farm will have a capacity of between 800MW and 1,000MW.
