Energy development Methods of energy production from various sources

Energy development is the field of activities focused on obtaining sources of energy from natural resources. These activities include production of conventional, alternative and renewable sources of energy, and for the recovery and reuse of energy that would otherwise be wasted. Energy conservation and efficiency measures reduce the demand for energy development, and can have benefits to society with improvements to environmental issues.

Energy in Denmark energy and electricity production, consumption, import and export in Denmark

Denmark has considerable sources of oil and natural gas in the North Sea and ranked as number 32 in the world among net exporters of crude oil in 2008. Denmark expects to be self-sufficient with oil until 2050. However, gas resources are expected to decline, and production may decline below consumption in 2020, making imports necessary. A large but drastically decreasing proportion of electricity is produced from coal, and hydropower and 3–4% nuclear power is imported, while wind turbines supply the equivalent of about 47% of electricity demand by 2019.
