The International Energy Agency (IEA) has been conducting in-depth country reviews since 1976. A core activity, the process of review by peers, not only supports member countries’ energy policy development and mutual learning, but it also encourages the exchange of international best practice and experience. In short, by seeing what has worked – or not – in the “real world,” these reviews help to identify policies that achieve objectives and bring results.
In 2016, the IEA decided to modernise the reviews by shifting their focus to key energy security challenges in fast-changing global energy markets, and to the transition to a clean energy system.
This report on Denmark offers insights into two special focus areas, which were chosen by the Danish government: integrating variable renewable energy into the electricity system and making the heating sector more sustainable. These two areas are critical for advancing decarbonisation in Denmark and, because they are intertwined, they also offer an attractive potential for energy system integration.
