Denmark to end their reliance on fossil fuels, aims for 100 percent renewable energy in 2050
DECEMBER 5, 2011
The new red and green government in Denmark wants to end the country’s reliance on fossil fuels. In a proposal presented to the parliament last week the Danish government laid out their new and bold energy plan. By 2050 Denmark should get 100% of their energy from renewable energy sources. The proposed energy plan would have four central deadlines. This target alone would cut Denmark’s greenhouse gas emissions with 35% based on 1990 levels.
