Danish report under Directive 2009/28/EC on progress in the use and promotion of energy from renewable sources
Subject headingsEnergy Policy
Article 22 of Directive 2009/28/EC requires Member States to submit a report to the Commission on progress in the promotion and use of energy from renewable sources by 31 December 2011, and every two years thereafter. This report is the Danish submission and follows the template prepared by the Commission for this purpose. The template comprises a series of questions from 1-12, with accompanying tables and guideline text in italics. The Danish Renewable Energy Action Plan was submitted to the Commission in June 2010. This progress report contains a description of the situation in 2009 and 2010. The figures have thus been calculated for the 2009 and 2010 calendar years, and the information contained in the report focuses on the period up to and including 2010. This report updates the Renewable Energy Action Plan in a number of areas for the second half of 2010. In its report “Our Future Energy”, the Danish Government presents suggestions for a series of new initiatives that form the basis for the establishment of an energy agreement for the period after 2010. The Danish Parliament (Folketinget) is currently (December 2011) debating this report. The Government’s suggestions are not a part of the progress report. All figures have been calculated in the same way as in the Danish Renewable Energy Action Plan, i.e. Ktoe, MW, GWh etc., as required by the Commission. In addition, the figures are also presented in TJ, with a conversion factor of 41.868 Ktoe/TJ (0.041868 Ktoe/PJ) .
