Green energy must be cheaper than fossil energy

  • 2016-09-26 12:46:28

By Henrik Poulsen, CEO, DONG Energy

More than 80 per cent of the world's energy supply comes from coal, oil and gas. There is a general consensus that CO2 emissions place a strain on our climate, yet our inability to set a proper price on these emissions means that it is still far too cheap to pollute. The costs of our inaction are already all too clear. At current emissions rates, the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change expects that global temperatures will rise by two degrees compared to pre-industrial levels, even before 2040.
