Implications of Danish Regulatory Policies for Technologies Supporting Sustainable Energy Development

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    The goal of the official Danish energy plans is to establish a sustainable energy development.This goal has been promoted by government programmes and regulations in different ways. Thus, the government has established test stations to secure a high quality of the new technologies and to certify the new products. Extensive development and demonstration programmes have ben sponsored by government money in the fields of biogas and wind power, followed up by government investment subsidies. Regulations by the EU Commission have been counterproductive in several cases, and the present liberalisation of the electricity market is raising serious questions for a sustainable development. The above points are discussed in the paper.
