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.

Coal free by 2030: Danish study shows how a large Chinese island could replace coal with renewables and become a Clean Energy Island as early as 2030
The Chinese Hainan Island and province could replace its entire coal-fueled energy production by 2030 by mainly investing in solar and wind power. A shift from coal to wind and solar would cost only 2 percent more annually compared to business as usual. This is the conclusion of a new study from the Danish Energy Agency.The study is part of the Danish-Chinese Energy Partnership Program and support

Electricity storage can play a crucial role in Mexico’s fulfilment of its climate goals, according to a new Danish-Mexican study
63 million tons. That is the amount of CO2 emissions that Mexico can cut per year in 2050 if the country achieves an optimal integration of large-scale electricity storage into the energy system. This is the conclusion in a brand new Danish-Mexican study. The reduction is equivalent to almost double the Danish CO2 emissions from energy consumption today.
Biomass analysis has been translated into English
The Danish Energy Agency published May 18th 2020 a Biomass analysis report concluding that biomass for energy in many cases is an advantage for the climate, e.g. when residues-based biomass replaces fossil fuels. However, in some cases, Danish consumption of biomass for energy can lead to global emissions of greenhouse gases. The report has now been translated into English.
