IEA commends  

Denmark’s energy strategy


Denmark is a leader in implementing well-designed policies for renewable energy, energy efficiency and climate change, according to a review of Danish energy policies published by the International Energy Agency (IEA).

Denmark is a frontrunner in green growth, says a new review by the International Energy Agency (IEA).

The review applauded Denmark’s long-term vision for a low-carbon future – all Danish energy supply is to come from renewable sources by 2050 – and its achievements to date, but also sounded some notes of caution regarding the implementation of such an ambitious strategy. 

- The IEA commends Denmark and its people for the scope of their vision and their many successes in adopting sustainable energy policies, said IEA Executive Director Maria van der Hoeven as she presented the review.

She continued: 

- Even with Denmark’s exemplary record, however, challenges remain and there is room for further enhancement if Denmark is to remain at the top of the class. This report provides a number of recommendations for Danish policymakers to consider.
