Towards a Low Energy Society from me

Jørgen Nørgaard, Bente Lis Christensen

    Research output: Book/ReportBookEducation


    The book is based on energy planning research at Technical University of Denmark. With 1980 as a base year, two possible scenarios for future development in Denmark are analysed and described with respect to technology used and life style practised. In a high-energy society the country's energy consumption is almost doubled by 2030, and in a low-energy society energy consumption in 2030 can be less than one third of that in the base year. In this updated version a chapter is added dealing with what actually happened over the first 20 years of the scenario period, in which energy consumption stayed constant in between the two scenarios. It is analysed what went right with energy savings and what didn't over these passed years. The book is illustrated with drawings and graphs by Claus Deleuran.
