Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate

The Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate was established on 28 June 2015, when the utilities area was added to the responsibilities of the Climate and Energy Ministry. The Ministry contributes to the Danish government’s increased efforts to ensure safety and efficiency within the areas of energy and utilities and to promote a greener and more sustainable society. These efforts include a governmental goal that Denmark will be independent of fossil fuels by 2050.

The Ministry was created to help achieve this goal, while at the same time ensuring Denmark contributes to global efforts to reduce CO2 emissions. The Ministry is responsible for administering legislation on energy supply and usage, tele communications, certain issues within the areas of water and waste, national geological surveys in Denmark and Greenland, and meteorological issues.

The Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate is made up of the Department, the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS), the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI), the Danish Energy Agency, The Danish Energy Regulatory Authority, Energinet.dk, the Danish Geodata Agency, and the Danish North Sea Fund.

The Department provides advice to the Minister for Energy, Utilities and Climate and carries out the political work of the Ministry in cooperation with the Ministry’s agencies – in particular the Danish Energy Agency. The Department is primarily responsible for coordination and development of domestic climate and energy policy, inter-ministerial coordination, and negotiation and implementation of international agreements and EU regulations. The Department consults with ministerial institutions when in need of expert advice.
