Energy prices are rising, geopolitical turmoil is having a huge impact on the energy sector around the world - including here at home - and now is the time to move and accelerate the green transition. We cannot magically conjure up a 100% sustainable Danish energy sector, but there are actions we can take here and now to create immediate positive impacts on electricity consumption and the climate. From Wednesday 16 March at 10.00, all Danish year-round homes can apply for subsidies for energy-saving measures in the home via the DKK 300 million Building Pool.
In view of the rising energy prices and geopolitical turmoil, which is also having a significant impact on the energy sector around the world and at home, it is more urgent than ever to give a further boost to the green transition.
We have already taken significant steps towards becoming more independent from fossil fuels like oil and gas, but there is still a long way to go.
Sustainable energy already meets a large part of Danish energy consumption, but still not enough to free us from CO2 emitting energy sources. And we can't conjure up a 100% sustainable Danish energy sector overnight.
Despite this, there are still actions we can take here and now to make an immediate positive impact on electricity consumption and the climate. We can become better at looking after the energy we already produce and use in Danish homes.
Energy-saving measures such as insulation, retrofitting, air conditioning screens and replacing oil and gas heat sources with heat pumps, as well as repairing or replacing leaky windows, can make an instant impact from tomorrow. If only because all these measures make our homes more energy efficient, so we can be better stewards of the energy we produce.
From Wednesday 16 March at 10.00, all Danish all-season homes can apply for a grant for energy-saving measures in the home via the DKK 300 million Building Pool.
Little is right too, especially in times like these. While we continue to work hard to make the Danish energy sector carbon-free.
