Denmark The Green State
Global warming and carbon dioxide emissions are words that you often hear. There is intense focus throughout the world upon climate change and there remains little doubt that all countries need to reduce their CO2 emissions.
For many years Denmark has been conscious of these problems and worked tirelessly to find environmentally friendly solutions. Our climate strategy has a long term aim to base our transport and energy systems on 100% renewable energy. Denmark's goal is to be fossil free by 2050.
On- and offshore wind turbines provide more than 28 per cent of Denmark’s electricity consumption today. This is the highest level of wind power integration in the world. By 2020, wind power will account for 50 per cent of the electricity supply, according to recent government targets.
