Denmark’s solar energy growth – way ahead of schedule

sunflag-Denmark1  Denmark Hits 200 Megawatt Solar Capacity Goal 8 Years Ahead of Schedule, inhabitat, by Molly Cotter 18 Apr 16 “….. VIEW SLIDESHOW

Lets face it – its rare we see a government goal reached on time, let alone early. Not too long ago, the Danish Government announced an ambitious goal to reach 200 megawatts of solar capacity by 2020, and as of last week, they have already met it! The country is currently installing an average of 36megawatts of solar panels each month. At this rate, their resulting capacity by 2020 will be over five times the original goal. Denmark‘s power is currently 20% supplied by renewable sources, and the nation has set a goal of sourcing 100% of its energy from renewable sources by 2050.

Solar panels are a hot commodity in Denmark, saving energy costs and giving homeowners the possibility of storing extra energy in the public grid. Building owners and communities alike have taken advantage of government-funded incentives and benefits of grid connectivity, solidifying the importance of renewable energy sources for the entire country. This national strategy has paid off big time for countries such as Denmark, Germany, Japan, and Spain who have all set solar goals and are moving toward a greener energy system. Lets hope in the light of this fantastic news, more countries jump on board the green train!
