The role of households in Danish energy policy: Visions and contradictions

Resumé

This chapter outlines the transformation of the Danish energy
system from the oil crises in the 1970s to the present challenges. Energy
policies have ensured a successful implementation of district heating
based on combined heat and power and high penetration of wind power
in the electricity system, but also substantial dependence on the use of
biomass. The transformations have concentrated mainly on the supply
side, where the involvement of households has been somewhat scattered.
Turning to the future challenge of decarbonization, more focus on the
demand side is needed, including energy savings and the electrification
of mobility and heating. In this process, households may need to be
involved differently. An innovative example of multi-actor engagement in
energy renovation of private homes is presented.
