The Agreement establishes a framework for the policy on climate and energy up to 2020 and outlines the direction Denmark will take until 2050.
According to the Agreement in 2020 half of the electricity consumption will come from wind power, enabling a share of 35% renewable energy in gross energy consumption in 2020. Moreover, the energy consumption is to decrease by more than 12 % in 2020 compared to 2006.
The initiatives in the Agreement will lead to CO2 emissions in 2020 being 34% lower than they were in 1990. At the same time, the Agreement is to ensure a stable framework for the business community as a whole, and the energy sector in particular IEA/IRENA Global Renewable Energy Policies and Measures Database © OECD/IEA and IRENA, [November 2020]
