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

India and Denmark launch Centre for Offshore Wind and Renewable Energy
Yesterday, the Honorable Minister R.K. Singh and Honorable Minister Dan Jørgensen inaugurated the joint Centre of Excellence for Offshore Wind and Renewable Energy in New Delhi. The vision is to become a nationally and internationally recognized, respected and leading knowledge hub working for a sustainable development of offshore wind energy in India.
New chapter in Ukrainian-Danish government cooperation to support Ukraine’s green transition and reduce energy consumption
The Ukrainian-Danish government cooperation is now embarking on a new five-year programme. The programme has a special focus on long-term energy planning, energy efficiency and district heating, where there is great potential for reducing both Ukraine's energy consumption and imports of fossil fuels.
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.
New report: How a state energy company like Ørsted shifted from black to green energy – and the regulatory framework that made it possible
What does it take for a country and its biggest state-owned energy company to successfully shift from black to green energy? A new report dives into both challenges and opportunities seized by policymakers and energy company Ørsted on Denmark’s path to green transition.
The Danish Energy Agency publishes discussion paper about the Energy Island in the North Sea
Today, the Danish Energy Agency publishes a Discussion Paper on the procurement framework for the commercial co-ownership of the Energy Island.
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,
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
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.
Sharing Denmark’s experiences on liberalising the power sector
A 50 percent share of wind and solar energy was a reality in Denmark - in 2019. The liberalisation of the Danish power sector is the foundation of the transformation. Yesterday, the Danish Energy Agency presents lessons learned and recommendations for other countries, which stand on the verge to take the same path in order to secure a competitive power system with a high share of renewable energy.
Roadmap to Offshore Wind Power Development and Policy Recommendations for Vietnam
Today, the Danish Energy Agency and the World Bank Group presented their studies and recommendations on the development of a new offshore wind sector to the Vietnamese government.
Nord Stream 2 AG may use pipe-laying vessels with anchors
The Danish Energy Agency has decided that Nord Stream 2 AG also may use pipelaying vessels with anchors in connection with construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipelines.
Denmark and India accelerates partnership on green energy transition with the signing of a new MOU
New Indo-Danish cooperation will prepare the Indian energy system for the integration of 450 gigawatt renewable energy by 2030.
The Ukraine-Denmark Energy Center launches advanced database with open and transparent energy data
The State Statistics Service of Ukraine (SSSU) and the Danish Energy Agency have launched a database covering three decades of previously disconnected energy data. By documenting developments in energy supply and consumption, the database could play a crucial part in visualizing possible scenarios for reaching Ukraine’s renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy independence targets.
Danish-Chinese cooperation shows how China can save 7 billion tons of CO2 annually by 2050 and reach its climate targets without increasing cost of energy
A cooperation between Danish and Chinese energy authorities has demonstrated how China could save more than 7 billion tons of CO2 annually by 2050 – nearly 200 times the annual Danish CO2 emissions from energy demand - and reach its national climate targets as well as the UN below 2-degree target without increasing cost of energy.
Danish and Indonesian Ministers conclude that Indonesian regions can save both energy and money in the future
Danish-Indonesian energy cooperation ascertains how the provinces of North Sulawesi, Gorontalo, South Kalimantan and Riau can save up to 11.5 million tons CO2 by 2030. That is 75% of the annual CO2 emissions from the Danish transport sector in 2018.
