Denmark uses 40% wind power, targets to cut fossil fuel by 2050

Denmark is on course to wean itself off the use of fossil fuels by 2050, according to a senior adviser at the Danish Industry Association, Hans Peter Slente.

The Scandinavian country currently generates 40 percent of the total power output from wind, and is also targeting a rise in this total by 10 percent in the next ten years. “It’s an ambition which drives the current green transition of our country which is on the right path, and at the right pace towards the end goal in 2050. We’re not there yet and we have to invest time, effort and money into achieving it. But it’s a trend that many countries in the world have embarked on. We would like to be part of it and in certain aspects be a leader in certain technologies and certain solutions,” Mr Slente said.
