Energy for a green Denmark

The Danish government has launched a new energy initiative, called “Energy for a green Denmark”. Our vision is that Denmark should be a low-emission society and be completely independent from fossil fuels by 2050. In the proposal we are setting a goal that at least 50 percent of our energy consumption should supplied by renewable energy sources by 2030.

The Danish government’s energy and climate goals

National targets:

  • By 2030, Denmark must have at least 50 percent of its energy needs covered by renewable energy.
  • By 2030, coal must be phased out of electricity production in Denmark.
  • By 2050, Denmark must be a low-emission society, independent of fossil fuels.
  • By 2020, greenhouse gas emissions from non-ETS sectors should be reduced by 20 percent compared with 2005 baseline levels, the EU's energy consumption should be covered by 20 percent renewable energy and energy efficiency must be increased by 20 percent (EU targets for Denmark).
  • Denmark will reduce emissions in non-ETS sectors by 39 percent, compared to 2005 baseline levels.

EU targets:

  • Annual energy savings in 2014-2020 of 1.5 percent of energy consumption.
  • The EU must reduce CO2 emissions by at least 40 percent by 2030.
  • The EU will collectively reduce emissions in the EU's
