Observing Denmark's Long-term Strategy for Green Transformation——Transition from the Cost-Effective Development Model to Energy Conservation and Sustainable Development
Kaare Sandholt;Niels Bisgaard Pedersen;
In the 1970s, the Danish energy industry began to transition due to the continued oil price hikes. Its energy policies initially focused on increasing domestic energy production and improving energy efficiency. At the same time, they also started to pay attention to ensuring that the energy supply system is secure and causes low environmental pollution and social cost. Denmark has successfully decoupled economic growth from energy consumption, which is mainly attributed to the heat and power cogeneration, renewable energy production and energy saving. It encouraged the use of renewable energy through policy guidance, making a great change in the energy consumption structure. The renewable energy not only ensures the security of energy supply but serves as a strategic arrangement enabling Denmark to achieve the goal of fully replacing fossil fuels by 2050. With the introduction of new technology and the political and business communities' continued attention to energy efficiency, the Danish enterprises have developed rapidly and gained valuable experience in new energy technology solutions.
