9% reduction in electricity consumption


Compared to previous years, the consumption of electricity and gas has decreased significantly this summer. 9% for electricity and 17% for gas. To avert a new energy crisis this autumn-winter season, the trend needs to continue. We need to reduce our electricity and gas consumption overall. 

  • According to the Danish Energy Agency, we shouldn’t experience a shortage of electricity this winter, as long as we continue to reduce our consumption and follow the hours when most electricity is produced. Of course, in the case of an extreme winter, the situation might change. 

  • Regarding gas, the European Union’s storage should be 90% full by November. However, the International Energy Agency warns that we need to reduce overall consumption of gas across Europe if we want to survive without access to Russian gas.
