Denmark, which is known as a global leader in wind power, had a relatively weak wind year in 2016. This is evident in calculations on the portion of electricity consumption from wind turbines, compiled in an overview over wind production in 2016 from Energinet.dk, Danish energy supplier owned by the country's ministry of energy, utilities, and climate.

In 2016, wind power constituted about 37.6 percent of the aggregate electricity consumption in Denmark. As such, wind supplied a much smaller percentage than it did in 2015, which was the record year with 42 percent.
