Denmark's Baseline Projection 2019 - now in English

The Danish version of Denmark's Baseline Projection 2019 was published on 30 August 2019. Now it is available in English translation.

The Danish Energy Agency is publishing the English translation of its Baseline Projection 2019, entitled: "Denmark's Energy and Climate Outlook 2019 - Baseline Scenario Projection Towards 2030 With Existing Measures (Frozen Policy)".

The Baseline Projection is an updated projection of Danish energy consumption, energy production and the greenhouse gas emissions up to 2030. The projection includes the expected effect of the existing initiatives and policies at the date of publication.

Among other things, the projection shows that consumption of coal is expected to be reduced by 90% in 2030 compared with 2017 and the renewables share of electricity consumption (RES-E) is expected to exceed 100% from 2028 and reach 109% in 2030. This is due in particular to deployment of offshore wind, onshore wind and solar PV. Furthermore, the total share of renewables (RES) is expected to be 54% in 2030. In 2020, the renewables share is expected to be 41%, whereby Denmark will have met, and exceeded, its EU obligation of 30%.

Welcome to Danish Energy Agency!

The work of the Danish Energy Agency involves matters relating to energy supply and consumption, as well as Danish efforts to reduce carbon emissions. The Agency is also responsible for Danish building policy and promotes more sustainable building with regard to energy consumption, use of materials and economic issues.

The Agency is responsible for the entire chain of tasks linked to energy production and supply, transportation and consumption, including energy efficiency and savings as well as Danish national CO2 targets and initiatives to limit emissions of greenhouse gasses. The Agency supports building-policy initiatives to increase the productivity and quality of building as well as the operation and maintenance of buildings, with focus on sustainable building. The Agency also collaborates with the building sector to establish a good framework for the industry.

The Danish Energy Agency was established in 1976, and is an agency under the Ministry of Climate, Energy and Utilities.
