Denmark using less electricity as a result of coronavirus crisis
The state-owned energy infrastructure company Energinet has been monitoring electricity consumption in recent weeks amid the coronavirus crisis restrictions and found that overall consumption decreased by 7 percent between March 2 and April 5.
This is despite a fairly big rise in household consumption, which has risen by 2 percent as many have been forced to stay at home and work.
Certain industries experienced huge declines in usage with hotels and restaurants down 38 percent, education down 39 percent, and culture and leisure down 45 percent.
The entire service sector experienced a dive of 15 percent, while the usage of agriculture and horticulture fell by approximately 10 percent.
