The Danish Energy Agency publishes monthly information about electricity supply on its website. The source of these statistics is Energinet.dk, which provides information about electricity supply in eastern and western Denmark. The monthly electricity supply statistics contain the following information:
- Electricity production by place of production
- Imports and exports of electricity by country
- Domestic electricity supply (electricity consumption and net losses)
The associated spreadsheet contains information for the period January to December 2010, for western and eastern Denmark and for the country as a whole.
