Danish government has a new climate action plan until 2030
The Danish government presented their first climate action plan to find CO2 reductions for the coming decade. The climate action plan contains a portion of the concrete actions to be taken in order to ensure a 70 per cent CO2-reduction by 2030 from 1990 levels.
The six main tracks, presented as one of the first concrete plans toward reaching the 70 per cent target, that are invested in are:
Energy islands with offshore wind turbines
Green fuels and Power-to-X (PtX)
Energy efficiency in buildings
Green heating by district heating or electric heat pumps
Green energy and energy efficiency improvements in the Danish industry
Climate neutral waste sector by 2030
The government estimates that the climate action plan can reduce CO2 by two million tonnes. However, in order to reach the ambition of a 70 per cent reduction of CO2 by 2030, a total reduction of just below 19 million tons is needed.
