The Security of electricity supply report 2018 uses selected highlights and analyses to sum up the security of electricity supply for 2017 and includes a related forward-looking risk assessment.

In general, Denmark's security of electricity supply level ranks among the highest in Europe, and the 2017 level was no exception. Danes had power available 99.995 per cent of the time. This means that the average consumer experienced less than 25 minutes of outage. Though this is slightly more than in 2016, the figure is still very low. The high level of security of electricity supply is mainly due to conversion to cables in the distribution grids
