    We provide an overview of the current conditions and framework for residential electricity consumption in Denmark. This includes a general overview of the sector, the retail market and the regulatory framework. We describe the regulations currently in place and changes which have been decided for the coming years.
    The information and data described are all publicly available, though much of it only in Danish language. This description is to our knowledge one of the first comprehensive overviews of the Danish residential sector in English language. We have translated a number of terms commonly used in the area, which are listed in the Glossary towards the end of the report. We also attach a list and description of the major sources of information and data that can be obtained and downloaded for analysis of the Danish residential electricity sector.
