The Danish parliament unanimously ratified the country's energy policy forward to 2030, which includes a significant reduction of onshore wind turbines .

The parties have all agreed that the presently installed, approximately 4,300 onshore wind turbines shall be limited to a maximum of 1,850 in the future. This policy will effectively, according to EnergyWatch's calculations, diminish the Danish onshore wind energy market – measured in unit quantity – to the level around March of 1989.
