This paper examines how Denmark is one of the world's most progressive countries regarding environmental partnerships, recycling, and the use of renewable energy sources. The paper also looks at how Denmark is active in global environmental politics as well, having signed the Antarctic Treaty, Kyoto Protocol, and the Endangered Species Act, all of which have aided Denmark in their aggressive stance to reduce their carbon footprint. A figure and a table are included in the paper.
From the Paper:"Denmark is also leading the European Union in the use of both public (large scale) and private (small-scale) solar energy explorations. Danes are encouraged to utilize small solar power cells for their hot water production, and rural Danes encouraged to use solar heating and power as much as possible in their farming operations. Already, energy use for home hot water has dropped over 22%, and, like wind power, certain tax credits are available for citizens who invest in solar technology, especially those who allow excess to be "sold back" to the utility companies ("Denmark Solar Energy News," 2009). Combing solar power and wind turbines is becoming more popular with the Danish government, who hopes to place combination units along the seacoast and eventually generate enough excess power to sell to other EU countries."
