  • Danes’ natural gas consumption continues to decline

    Total natural gas consumption in Denmark fell by 3.6 percent in 2023, according to a calculation by Danmarks Statistik based on annual energy accounts.

    The decline in usage in 2023 comes after sanctions imposed on Russia in 2022 following the invasion of Ukraine drove natural gas prices up in the EU.

    Though prices in Denmark have now returned to levels comparable with 2021, the Danes have continued to reduce their dependence on natural gas.

    Not only has the proportion of gas in the overall national energy supply decreased, but a significant number of households have replaced their natural gas boiler with other energy sources, reports Ritzau.

    “It is another good step for the green transition. I note that the share of biogas continues to rise, and thus we are well on our way to securing a 100 percent green gas system,” commented Troels Ranis, deputy director of Danish Industry.

    Biogas is an energy source produced by the breakdown of organic matter such as food scraps and animal waste.

    Combined, renewable energy sources are becoming an ever larger proportion of Danes’ total energy use, according to the annual accounts.

    Their share in energy consumption has increased year on year from just under a quarter in 2011, to 45.2 percent in 2023.

    The majority of the Danish renewable energy comes from solid biomass, which includes wood pellets and wood chips, used to produce electricity and district heating.

    It’s worth noting that, despite the popular celebration of biogas, there is plenty of controversy around the green credentials of burning wood in this form.

    It has been widely promoted by industry as a cleaner, more renewable energy alternative to coal and gas. But while the wood pellets industry claims it uses only waste wood and branches, environmental groups say there is strong evidence that vast swaths of valuable, untouched forest have been clear cut to feed the growing sector.

    Elsewhere in Denmark’s renewable energy sector, wind power made up 10.6 percent of the total energy consumption in 2023. This figure has remained roughly constant.

    The total Danish energy consumption – without calculating fuel for vehicles, ships and aircraft abroad – was 0.2 percent lower than the previous year.

  • Danes divided on whether Denmark should aim for higher 2030 climate goals

    In April, Denmark announced it was close to hitting its 2030 climate goals of reducing 70 percent of greenhouse gas emissions compared with 1990s levels.

    According to the government’s Annual Climate Status and Projection report, if current efforts continue, Denmark will achieve a 68 percent reduction by 2030.

    The Climate Council says that the government should aim higher than its 70 percent goal. In May, the organisation argued that a buffer would reduce the risk of expensive last minute actions in order to reach the goal.

    According to a new survey by Epinion for DR, Danes are divided on the suggestion.

    Of 1,076 respondents, when asked whether Denmark should set a higher 2030 goal, 43 percent yes, 36 percent said no, and 19 percent do not know.

    Younger generations in particular said the that the goal should be raised.

    The current coalition government pledged when it was elected in 2022 to shift the net-zero target year from 2050 to 2045, and to create new climate goals along the way.

    But the Minister of Climate, Energy and Supply, Lars Aagaard, wrote to DR that it’s important to know for sure that the goals will be reached, before talking about new goals.

    He added that agricultural emissions need to come down and that climate efforts in general must be strengthened in the lead up to 2030 as success is by no means guaranteed, given the unpredictability of climate forecasting.

  • New study finds Danish film in a league of its own

    A new EU research report comparing small film markets has singled out Danish film as a frontrunner in Europe.

    Launched last week at the Cannes Film Festival, the report compares Denmark’s film scene with those of six other small European film countries – Estonia, Belgium (Flanders), Ireland, Croatia, Lithuania and Portugal.

    The report examines factors like production volume and composition, genre repertoire, production and development support, market shares in cinemas, characteristics of the cinema and distribution market, cinema sales abroad, presence in streaming catalogues and nominations and awards at film festivals.

    Denmark came out on top in the following:

    More controversially, Denmark is the only one among the seven that does not offer film production discounts and/or tax schemes, notes Aarhus University’s Arts department in a press statement.

  • Folkemødet prepares for loud demonstrations

    Next week from 13 to 15 June, the annual Folkemødet (Open Festival for People and Democracy, Ed.) will be held in Allinge on Bornholm.

    Up to 60,000 gather in the picturesque village in the Baltic Sea and participate in public debates where politicians, business leaders and ordinary people meet in the open air.

    Everything is carried out in peace and quiet and the police who are present rarely have much to do.

    But recent loud demonstrations against Danish politicians in Kødbyen and in Fælledparken have caught the organizers of Folkemødet in a dilemma.

    Disagreement is usually welcomed, and everyone has the opportunity to express themselves – also critical of Denmark’s rulers,

    Mixed signals from the management

    First, Folkemødet’s management sent out an e-mail to all the organizers and partners who gather for the debate on Bornholm.

    In the message, the board suggested that organizers of debates could consider inviting protesters and activists onto the stage if they interrupt an event.

    This led several Danish politicians to criticize that approach and to openly consider their participation in Folkemødet.

    On Sunday evening, Folkemødet’s leadership tightened the instructions. Now applies:

    • Persons and groups who deliberately destroy debates and shut down other people’s conversations are not welcome at the Folkemødet. The public meeting takes place in the public space and is therefore regulated by the laws, rules and rights that apply here.

    • Folkemødet will not accept protesters who want to force access to a given stage or event. Folkemødet is responsible for the main stage, which will be guarded. Organizers are responsible for their own stages.

    • The leadership encourages everyone at Folkemødet to participate in the democratic debate within the agreed rules of the game. All guests should follow instructions from stewards, hosts and the police. It provides the best framework for democratic conversation.

    Folkemødet does not have trained guards who can expel or stop visitors to Folkemødet.

    Volunteers keep an eye on valuables, some are security guards who help control large crowds and others are security guards who help guests if they have had an accident etc.

    Overall security is enforced by the Bornholm Police.
