Denmark has always been a pioneer in clean energy and an expert in using nature’s power as energy for people.
Denmark is surrounded by water and as the country is one of the countries in the world with the lowest average elevation (34 meters), it gives for some windy days along the 8.500 km. long coastlines.
Therefore, of course, energy - in the form of water, wind or solar - is one of our most important export items. The Danish export of energy technology- and services amounted to a total of 106,7 billion DKK (14,2 billion euros) in 2020, where the Netherlands, Germany and USA were the biggest importers of Danish energy technology and 52,2 % was exported to other EU countries.
The energy sector creates many different job opportunities. In all parts of the sector, there is a great need for qualified workers – Engineers, IT professionals, Electricians, Plant Operators, Welders, metal workers, and many more.
The videos on this page are produced by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and you can read a lot more about sustainability in Denmark on their website.

Good luck job hunting! Or as we say in Denmark “god vind!” (good wind)*.
*God vind means good luck in Danish and is usually used as a way of wishing good fortune on parting. The expression comes from the days of the sail boats taking the Danes far and wide.
