To which degree are you using renewable energies?
Via this posting by Thomas Fouad Lund-Sørensen, Danish ambassador actually residing in the Kingdom of Jordan, I learned about Blog Action Day, an annual event held every October 15 that unites the world’s bloggers in posting about the same issue on the same day with the aim of sparking discussion around an issue of global importance.
This year it’s about climate change.
In this regard, I came across this 2 minute video with Ms. Connie Hedegaard, Minister for Climate and Energy, Denmark. Ms. Hedegaard explains, for example, that back in 1980, just 3% of total energy consumption in Denmark was stemming from renewable energies. Today, it’s almost 19%. Reading this article, I also learned that not least energy equipment has become an important driver behind Danish export growth in recent years. To which degree are you using renewable energies?
