Smart grid key to Denmark’s plan to go 100% renewable energy

April 10, 2012 at 12:46 am

Recently the government of Denmark committed to shifting half of its total energy consumption to renewable resources in a decade — and to go to 100% renewables in the future.

On March 22 the Danish Ministry of Climate, Energy and Buildings released an agreement to meet half of that nation’s electricity need with wind power by 2020. Currently wind power can serve only a quarter of Denmark’s 1.5 million households.

This agreement also covers energy use for heating, industry, and transportation — not just residential electricity service. It implies that Denmark could cut energy consumption by 12% by 2020 (compared to 2006 usage).
