No. 245: Energy in the Future
Energy in the FutureThe basis for a sustainable, intelligent and flexible energy system in Denmark has been made.Common understanding
Through an open dialogue, the project of the Danish Board of Technology on the future Danish energy system has created a common understanding of the challenges of energy policy – across political disagreements and interests of various actors.
Intelligent and flexible
The first half of the road to a climate neutral Denmark with a reliable energy supply is paved with difficult assignments. The project of the Danish Board of Technology shows that they can be solved in a flexible energy system with intelligent management.
The music must play together
Many decisions must be made and many means must be used. The actors should coordinate their activities. The investments, changes and teamwork will begin for real when the objectives have been determined and the framework defined.
The sooner the better
The costs of the reorganization will get higher as time goes by. In general, the costs are low in comparison with the economic growth and the new export opportunities. If the oil price does not decrease, the reorganization will present a surplus.
This issue of From Board to Parliament is based on a conference in the Landsting Chamber at Christiansborg on 17th September 2007.
