EU cooperation on green transition

The frames of the Danish energy and climate policy are more and more set by the EU. This is where agreement is reached as to a common, European target of e.g. a reduction of greenhouse gas emission, sustainable energy and energy efficiency improvement.

The EU Energy Union 

The specific cooperation about energy and climate policy is concentrated in the EU energy union targeting on making energy safer, cheaper and sustainable for the good of European consumers and the competitiveness of European companies. The EU Energy Union covers five coherent and interrelated dimensions:

  • Reduction of greenhouse gas emission

  • Increased security of energy supply

  • Improved energy efficiency

  • The building of a fully integrated single market of energy

  • Research and innovation

Meetings of the Council of Ministers

The Danish Minister of Energy, Utilities and Climate participates in meetings in the Council of Ministers in Brussels and Luxembourg to discuss matters on the climate and energy policy agenda with colleagues from other EU countries and to pass new EU legal acts. Questions about energy are as a main rule dealt with in the council formation concerning Transport, Telecommunication and Energy (TTE), whereas climate is dealt with in the Environment Council. The meetings are held about every second months.
