Green Energy and Dirty Energy Landscape of Copenhagen

While it is true that Denmark consumes less imported coal than it did in 1990 (Denmark has no domestic coal reserves), still 50% of Danish electricity, steam and heat supply still derives from the combustion of imported coal.

Looking at the landscape around Copenhagen out to the surrounding areas, one will find multiple Coal Burning Power plants next to their green cousins the infamous windmills. This landscape is a future that most developed countries in the world will have for the next decades. A mix a clean and dirty power.

The Bella Center Feature Windmills in front of it as a monument to the UNFCC COP 15. Seen here at night with a spot light on it.
