The Danish system of electricity policy-making and regulation
EPG Working Paper: 1504
Denmark is a global leader in transforming its energy system to a more sustainable model, with high levels of renewable electricity and heat, and high energy efficiency. Its transformation is not slowing; rather the country is now committed to a complete decarbonisation of its energy system by 2050. This paper examines the policy-making process and regulatory framework that has facilitated this system change, focusing in particular on electricity. It gives an overview of the main actors in the sector and their inter-relationships. It then gives a brief assessment of the quality of the policy-making and regulatory system against some commonly used criteria.
