Large increase in Danish energy consumption in 2021

In 2021, energy consumption for the Danish economy increased by 8.1%, the largest increase in energy consumption since 2006. The increase is a rebound after the large decline due to COVID-19, and means that 2021’s demand was just 3.5% lower than 2019. Household energy consumption increased by 4.8%. and thus exceeded consumption in 2019 by 0.6%. Energy consumption for companies, excluding international transport, increased by 7.2%.
