The Danish governments long-term strategy on energy policy, Energy Strategy 2025, was designed to address fluctuating energy markets, international climate obligations, and the need for more effective competition. Energy Strategy 2025 followed the principles of liberalised energy markets and the use of marked-based instruments to achieve objectives related to effectiveness, security of supply and environment. The Strategy addressed energy efficiency in the transport sector, and analyzed business potentials of new and more effective energy technology. Energy Strategy 2025 presented an action plan for Denmarks future electricity structure in the context of: - liberalised energy markets within a common EU framework, - market-based, cost-effective instruments, and - public authorities providing the overall grid infrastructure and economic instruments, including the CO2 allowance scheme. In line with this, the strategy did not propose quantitative objectives for the extension of renewable energy and instead envisaged a market-based increase in the use of renewable energy. It also underscored the importance of research and development of new energy technologies. To this end, the Government, concurrently published three new research and development strategies: one for hydrogen technologies, one for liquid biofuels, and one for wave energy. Energy Strategy 2025 also focused on the transport sector, in providing for the establishment of a committee to discuss the overall perspectives for alternative propellants in transport, including biofuels. In relation to energy efficiency specifically, the plan was supplemented by the political agreement of 10 June 2005 on energy-saving initiatives (see separate database entry).
