ENERGY AND CLEAN TECH
Denmark has decided to lead the green growth transition and is aiming at becoming independent of fuels by 2050, as the first country in the world.
This ambitious goal rests on a solid foundation. Completely dependent on imported oil for decades, Denmark was severely affected by the oil crises in the 1970s.
It was then decided to take a new path to meet the growing energy needs and, at the same time, to cater for environmental concerns.
As a result, green issues such as energy efficiency, renewable energy, waste and resource management, clean air and water and sustainable cities have become deeply embedded in the Danish mindset. Time has shown that sustainable economic and environmental policies can indeed go hand in hand.
Since 1980, the Danish economy has grown by almost 80 per cent without increasing gross energy consumption. Today, Denmark has grown to become a global leader in the development of new sustainable technologies and solutions applied all over the world. The Danish energy industry is proud to share its solutions and inspire companies, citizens and regulators.
