Comments Off on Denmark Could be Fossil Fuel-Free by 2050

A new report by the Denmark government’s climate commission says that the country could by fossil fuel-free by 2050.  The majority of the nation’s energy requirements would be met by wind and biomass energy. Denmark is already a world leader in wind , with about 20 percent of its energy coming from wind, so compared to other countries, they don’t have quite as far to go, but going completely fossil fuel-free will still be quite an overhaul. The report says that the government will actually save money through this transition to renewables and it has a clear-cut plan for the government to follow.  The committee says by investing 0.5 percent of the annual GDP every year in renewable energy, the country could easily meet the 2050 goal.  The total investment would total about $2.5 billion.
