Wind power accounted for a record high of 43.4% of the total electricity consumption in Denmark in 2017, official data released on Thursday showed. The new record surpasses the previous 2015 record of 42%, keeping Denmark on track to reach its target of having 50% of all electricity produced by wind power by 2020, figures from Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate showed, Xinhua reported. "With the wind power production record, Denmark places a green flag on the world map. We once again show the whole world that Denmark has the world's best energy system," said Lars Christian Lilleholt, Danish minister of energy, utilities and climate, in a statement. "We have managed to accommodate large amounts of wind power and other green sources of energy, while maintaining high security of supply," he added. According to Lilleholt, the government is working to have at least 50% of its energy needs covered by such renewable energy as wind and solar power by 2030.
