Hidden Job Market in the Renewable Energy Sector: Denmark: Greater Copenhagen and Denmark have taken a lead position in sustainable energy. Greater Copenhagen’s Smart Grid sector is among Europe’s leading, attracting international research and innovation . In recent years, more than 30% of all EU Smart Grid R&D projects have taken place in Denmark. Undoubtedly Denmark is a country for wind technology and a global wind technology hub. Today, 30% of Denmark’s electricity consumption is covered by wind turbines, increasing to 50% by 2020. Siemens (https://www.siemens.com/global/en/home/markets/wind.html) Gamesa Renewable Energy and MHI Vestas (www.mhivestasoffshore.com) produce 75% of the world’s offshore wind turbines. In October 2017 three Danish wind technology giants form the eWind Partnership which – shortly afterwards – counts already 26 companies, including, but not limited to Ørsted (formerly known as DONG Energy), Statoil, A2Sea, Vattenfall, Dancoat and Gardit.
