    Abstract

    The current status of wind power and the energy infrastructure in Denmark is reviewed in this paper. The reasons for why Denmark is a world leader in wind power are outlined. The Danish government is aiming to achieve 100% renewable energy generation by 2050. A major challenge is balancing load and generation. In addition, the current and future solutions of enhancing wind power penetration through optimal use of cross-energy sector flexibility, so-called indirect electric energy storage options, are investigated. A conclusion is drawn with a summary of experiences and lessons learned in Denmark related to wind power development.
