No, country X did NOT just run entirely on wind.

What fossil fuel was Denmark running, coal, natural gas or diesel at the time of high wind production.

It is harder to ramp the production of a coal plant up or down but I thought natural gas and diesel could ramp up or down pretty dramatically pretty quickly. Maybe the answer is for Denmark to abandon coal as the back-up system and just use LNG. LNG is expensive but if Denmark can limit use to non-windy period they could have less CO2, cleaner air and competitive rates.
