  • Denmark’s total installed PV capacity as of March 31, 2023 was 3.25 GW
  • It includes 236 MW deployed in Q1/2023 of which largest share was of subsidy-free solar plants
  • According to the Danish Energy agency, Denmark installed more than 1 GW PV within March 2022 and March 2023

The Danish Energy Agency or Energistyrelsen counts Denmark to have installed 236 MW new solar PV capacity in Q1/2023, including 72% expansion in subsidy-free installations, taking the country’s total installed capacity to over 3.25 GW. Aggregate installed capacity grew by 8% on quarterly basis.

Of the 236 MW, 169 MW was contributed by subsidy-free solar power plants and those for self-consumption. On cumulative basis, 1.73 GW came from this segment as of March 31, 2023, while 336 MW from self-consumption installations with instant settlement, 248 MW from projects supported under previously held tenders, and remaining 938 MW from facilities supported by previous support schemes.

According to the agency, in the initial 3 months of 2023, more new solar projects have been grid connected than in the whole of 2021. More than 1 GW of new solar PV capacity was grid connected by the country between March 2022 and March 2023.

A November 2022 report on 3 Nordic nations by Rystad Energy shows the country is expanding its solar PV capacity to grow to 9 GW by 2030 and could become a powerhouse energy supplier to Europe (see 3 Nordic Nations To Add 12.8 GW Solar PV Capacity By 2030).
