The price of renewable energy in Denmark has set a new record low. Danish project developer Better Energy won it all at the Danish Energy Agency's solar tender and will construct three solar farms of a total 21.6 MW, with just a supplement of DKK 0.01289/kWh on the market price. This fare is not only the cheapest seen in Denmark, but also internationally lower than most solar panel projects in much sunnier countries.

"This emphasizes that solar power is competitive and confirms that it's here to stay in Denmark," says Managing Partner of Better Energy, Mark Augustenborg Ødum.
