Although Denmark is an electricity exporter, it is even more an importer. According to this Energy Flows chart, they imported 242 PJ of oil for electricity generation (producing about 82 PJ) and 25 PJ of electricity itself. They exported 56 PJ of electricity, a number suspiciously close to the 63 PJ of electricity production from renewables (mostly from wind, presumably).
(A petajoule [PJ] is equivalent to about 278,000 gigawatt-hours of electrical energy.)
