In the period between the beginning of April 2022 and 20 June 2022, the Danish Energy Agency received 27 applications for the new offshore wind turbine projects. The Danish Energy Agency has found that a large number of the applications were located in area reservations for government tenders. These are applications in the following areas: Aalbæk Bay, Esbjerg, Falster, Hanstholm, Hirtshals, Stevns, Tønder and Djursland.


The Danish Energy Agency has received a high number of applications for new offshore wind turbine projects in the open door scheme. Several of these applications must be rejected as they overlap with the state land reservations.

The law promoting renewable energy states that applications can not be submitted outside tenders that completely or partially overlap with the state land reservations. Applications received in these areas must be rejected by the Minister of Climate, Energy and Utilities.

On that basis, the Danish Energy Agency cancels the authority hearings on the offshore wind farms at Hanstholm, Stevns and Falster.
