Denmark is a leader when it comes to fighting climate change. By 2050, the country plans to meet 100 percent of its energy needs with renewables, creating more jobs, increasing exports and reducing its energy dependence.

“Today, we’re already at 43 percent,” said Kristoffer Böttzauw, the deputy director general of the Danish energy agency Energistyrelsen, which coordinates Denmark’s energy policy.
“At present, renewable energy sources account for about 25 percent of Denmark’s total energy consumption,” said Böttzauw. He’s convinced that the country’s goal to completely abandon coal, oil and gas by 2050 is realistic.
