Denmark sets new world record in renewable energy production by covering 39% of the country’s total electricity consumption in 2014 through wind power. – Orrazz

2014 was a record year for wind power in Denmark. 
 
According to year-end numbers from Energinet.dk, 39 percent of all electricity used in Denmark last year was produced by wind power. The 2014 totals dipped slightly from the 41.2 percent of electricity generated by wind through the year’s first six months, but the climate minister said Denmark is still well on its way to achieving its energy goals. 
 
“We will definitely hit our 2020 goals. We have set a one-of-a-kind world record. And it shows that we can reach our ultimate goal, namely to stop global warming,” Climate Minister Rasmus Helveg Petersen told broadcaster DR.
 
The Danish government has set the goal of having half of all electricity produced by wind power by 2020.
