  • The Danish Climate Act ensures that Denmark works to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 70 percent in 2030 compared to 1990 levels and towards net zero by 2050.
  • The Danish parliament has just agreed to an intermediate goal of reducing GHG by 50-54 pct. in 2025.
  • Denmark is constructing two energy islands in the North Sea and Baltic Sea, which will distribute power from several new offshore wind farms to millions of European households. The energy island in the North Sea alone will eventually have a capacity of 10 gigawatt, equivalent to the electricity demand of about 10 million European households. The abundance of wind energy will eventually be utilised to power “Power-to-X” technologies that can store or convert green electricity into green fuels. The climate agreement on green transformation of industry and the energy sector includes a tender to support the establishment of large-scale Power-to-X plants with a total capacity of 100 MW.
