The Danish Energy Agency is publishing the English translation of its Baseline Projection 2018, entitled: “Denmark’s Energy and Climate Outlook 2018 – Baseline Scenario Projection Towards 2030 With Existing Measures (Frozen Policy)”.
The Baseline Projection is an updated projection of Danish energy consumption, energy production and the greenhouse gas emissions up to 2030. The projection includes the expected effect of the existing initiatives and policies at the date of publication.
The Danish version was published on 13 April and was used in connection with the preparation of the new Energy Agreement concluded on 29 June 2018. The effects of the elements in the Energy Agreement will be incorporated in the next year’s baseline projection. The Baseline Projection 2018, and the English translation, show expected developments before the initiatives in the new Energy Agreement are incorporated.
“Denmark’s Energy and Climate Outlook 2018” serves as an example for international partners of how the Danish Energy Agency works and how it establishes valuable solutions which form the basis of Danish policy-making and planning on energy and the climate.
