Overview

DTU is following the COVID-19 situation and its impact closely, please consult the webpage to get the latest updates.

Study programme focus

In recent years, wind energy has become an important source of electricity production, and since wind energy contributes to reducing CO2 emissions, this is regarded as a very positive trend. Wind energy is expected to cover 12 per cent of the global power consumption in 2020, with the number of employees in the wind industry reaching two million. In Denmark, wind energy already constitutes more than 30 per cent of the total energy production, but is expected to increase over the next years.
