Fossil-free by 2050

Ongoing government commitment to the clean energy transition means we can provide a stable and predictable framework for your long-term investment.

The Danish government aims to make Denmark completely independent of fossil fuels by 2050. A series of short-term targets for 2020 are contributing to: a 12% reduction in gross energy consumption compared to 2006; 35% of energy from renewable sources; and 50% of electricity consumption based on wind energy.

Booming cleantech industry brings sustainable growth

Sustainable development goes hand in hand with economic growth. Over the past four decades, Denmark’s economy has grown almost 80%, while energy consumption remains largely unchanged.
