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.

Once reported at 43 percent by Kristoffer Böttzauw, the deputy director general of the Danish energy agency Energistyrelsen.  They are the ones who coordinate Denmark’s energy policy.

Denmark has shown that industrialized countries are able to carry out real, genuine, and rapid energy transitions. Even in the middle of Europe, making it a model country for renewable energy. Therefore making it a blueprint for Europe and Germany.

With about 4,500 miles of coastline, the conditions for wind power in Denmark are better than almost anywhere in Europe. Located between the North and Baltic Seas, Denmark has naturally looked to the waters to expand its wind power projects.

A Swedish-German-Danish partnership is working on setting up a 600-megawatt wind farm in the waters between the three countries, set to produce electricity by 2020 at the latest. In 2013, a 400-megawatt offshore wind farm was inaugurated off the Danish island of Anholt. All with wind turbines provided by German multinational Siemens.

Finally, It seems that the UK ought to look to Denmark. In conclusion, Denmark is a model of sustainable energy when implementing environmental policy.
