One of the largest off-shore wind farms in the world

Copenhagen

Detailed description of the Good Practice

The world's second largest offshore wind farm with a total capacity of 160 MW, enough to power 150,000 Danish households. Offshore turbines produce 150 percent more electricity than land-based turbines.

Horns Rev is the second largest off-shore wind project in the world with 80 wind turbines and a total capacity of 160 MW located 14-20 kilometers into the North Sea, off the west-coast of Denmark's Jutland Peninsula.
Energy efficiency

The turbines produce an annual output of 600,000,000 kilowatt-hours, which corresponds to the consumption of 150,000 Danish households, nearly 2% of Denmark's total electricity consumption.
