Energy 21 in Denmark
 
A new energy action for Denmark has been approved by the
Parliament. The plan confirms the existing target of 20% CO2
reduction for the period of 1988 to 2005, and sets a new
long-term aim of 50% CO2 reduction by 2030. This shall be met
with vigourous energy-efficiency measures and an increase in
reliance on renewable energy from 8% today to 35% in 2030. The
plan was welcomed by many NGOs for its realistic attitude towards
environmental problems, in line with recommendations of the IPCC,
the UN scientific panel on Climate Change. It has been
criticized by NGOs for not having strong enough measures to reach
the goals, and especially for lack of measures to stop the
increasing CO2 emissions from traffic.
