Green Transition – when will it happen?

Denmark, like many other countries, has committed to reducing CO2 emissions. However, why is this such a difficult task

Students in the C-level elective course in physical geography have been studying climate change, climate disasters, and Denmark’s energy consumption.

As a conclusion, they took a closer look at both the opportunities and challenges of the green transition in Denmark, with a view to achieving Denmark’s reduction targets.

The class was divided into four groups, each representing a different solution option for the green transition: power-to-X, an energy island in the North Sea, Smartgrid, biofuels, and CO2 storage.

The students were given a financial framework of 100 billion – which was deliberately too low on the part of the teacher – and then they had to negotiate a plan for what Denmark should invest in to reduce our CO2 emissions in order to achieve our target of a 70% reduction in 2030 and be completely CO2-neutral in 2045.
The students pulled out all the stops to reach a compromise of 198 billion – which was not quite within the 100 billion framework, and so, they were realizing how difficult it is to achieve the reduction targets and the many obstacles that exist.
