Martin Lidegaard, Danish minister for climate, energy and building, confirmed that parliament had agreed a new set of goals of supplying 100% of its energy from renewable sources by 2050, including industry, electricity, heating and transport.
“Denmark will once again be the global leader in the transition to green energy. This will prepare us for a future with increasing prices for oil and coal. Moreover, it will create some of the jobs that we need so desperately, now and in the coming years,” said Lidegaard.
