Wind and solar power will beat coal in the battle for Chinas energy transformation
In 2060, wind and solar power will supply more than 90 per cent of the energy needed for the Chinese society, and coal will be out. The China Energy Transformation Outlook 2021 summary presents pathways for achieving China’s targets to peak CO2 emissions before 2030 and reach carbon neutrality before 2060. Besides the shift to renewables, energy efficiency will be a key pillar to decouple energy d

New Danish district heating cooperation will help China achieve its climate goals
Today, around a third of the world's energy is used on heating and cooling. Especially in China, the potential for green heating is huge. Based on this, UNEP DTU Partnership and the Danish Energy Agency are entering into a new cooperation agreement on district heating in China.
Danish approach inspires Mexican industry giants to enroll in energy efficiency program
With inspiration from Denmark, a number of Mexican energy intensive companies, such as Nestlé, Bimbo and Audi, have signed a voluntary agreement for energy efficiency. They have committed to increase their energy efficiency and the agreements signed so far will reduce emissions with more than 55.000 tons CO2eq per year. This corresponds to the annual emissions of 12.000 Danish households.
China could reach 2030-renewable energy target faster than expected
Key results from upcoming China Renewable Energy Outlook 2020 show the importance of a fast development of wind and solar to achieve China’s targets of the Paris Agreement. In 2020, China added a record of 120 gigawatt wind and solar PV. A development that shows it is realistic to reach the 1,200 GW target even before the estimated target in 2030.
Danish Energy Agency and IFU strengthen cooperation on green energy in developing and emerging countries
There is a great need for green energy in developing and emerging countries, and many Danish companies have the right solutions. An agreement between the Danish Energy Agency and the Investment Fund for Developing Countries, IFU, will contribute to sharing of the Danish green transition experience and financing solutions within green energy in a number of countries, such as India, Egypt, Ethiopia,
Roadmap to Offshore Wind Power Development and Policy Recommendations for Vietnam
