Denmark world champs in addressing sustainable energy

Denmark ranked first in the ‘Energy Security’ category, sixth in ‘Environmental Sustainability’ and tenth in ‘Energy Equity’ for an overall first place finish out of 125 nations. Denmark moved up from sixth place on last year’s rankings and was ahead of Switzerland, Sweden, the Netherlands and Germany, while France, Norway, Finland, New Zealand and Austria completed the top 10. To overcome the challenges and reach its ambitious targets of becoming independent of fossil fuels and reducing CO2 emissions, Danish policymakers are focusing on the implications of being fossil fuel free for the transport sector, the future role of the Danish natural gas grid and the introduction of huge amounts of fluctuating renewable energy in the electricity grid.
