Green Eco: Denmark and UK

Denmark and UK in agreement on green economy (joint statement)

Feb. 24, 2011 - Joint statement by Chris Huhne, UK Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, and Dr. Lykke Friis, Danish Minister for Climate and Energy, to coincide with publication of the Danish’s Government’s Energy Strategy 2050, which is released today.

Denmark and the UK are in agreement that our future prosperity depends on stimulating green growth, and getting off the oil hook.

Both our countries are working on radical and transformative plans to decarbonise our energy supplies and support new green innovation. And we’re working together on initiatives such as the North Seas Offshore grid and the development of smart grid technology, while our businesses are driving forward ambitious offshore wind development.

The Danish 'Energy Strategy 2050' outlines an impressive long-term plan towards realising the Danish government's goal of achieving independence from coal, oil and natural gas by 2050. Increasing energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy are key to delivering these results. {continued}
