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%.
