In May 2000, the Danish government passed an act concerning the promotion of energy conservation. The act set the overall framework for co-ordination of, and priority given to, energy-saving initiatives for all sectors, actors and measures. It enabled the appointment of local energy conservation committees to co-ordinate local work to save energy, and established new initiatives for energy conservation in the public sector. The act complemented requirements for energy savings in the Electricity Supply Act, the Natural Gas Supply Bill and amendments to the Heat Supply Act.
