Invest in Danish Cleantech  

Denmark has set the ambitious goal of having its energy supply entirely powered by renewable sources by 2050.

Denmark has gone from being 99 % dependent on foreign fossil fuel to being completely energy self-sufficient. Almost forty years of focused energy policy has catapulted Denmark ahead of most other nations in the use of renewable energy technology.

Fossil-free by 2050

The Danish government has set the goal to be completely independent of fossil fuels by 2050. The Government also has ambitious shorter term goals of a 12 % reduction of gross energy consumption in 2020 in comparison to 2006; a share of 35 % renewable energy in 2020; and 50 % wind energy in Danish electricity consumption in 2020.

Sustainable growth and a booming cleantech industry

Danish society exemplifies how sustainable development can go hand in hand with increasing consumption and economic growth. In the last 25 years, the Danish economy has grown by 70 % while energy consumption has remained largely unchanged.
Cleantech has been the fastest-growing sector of Danish exports in recent years, and exports are expected to quadruple in the next four to five years.
