The Green Fuels for Denmark (GFDK) project brings together leading Danish companies representing the demand and supply side of sustainable e-fuels behind a vision to establish an ambitious sustainable fuels production facility. The project aims to establish a 1.3 GW electrolyser in 2030 powered by 2-3 GW offshore wind from the Bornholm energy island, which holds the potential to replace >270.000 tpa. of fossil fuel consumption in 2030, equivalent to a 1.77% reduction in Danish CO2 emissions. Phase 2 involves establishing commercial operation at a 250 MW scale to produce e-methanol and e-kerosene. The partnership has decided to bring forward 100 MW of the originally planned second phase’s 250 MW electrolysis from 2027 to 2025.
