Yay! Now where's the US?

Every time I see something exciting like this, it comes coupled with disappointment that my lovely home country has not so much as made 100% clean energy a stated goal, let alone set a timeline to actually do it.

So much politics. So few accomplishments...
Solar too, I would imagine.

As point of use solar has reached grid parity in Germany with a cost of 2$2.71 per install watt, I imagine there will be some solar in that mix, even though Denmark is not a sunny place.

Electricity is always a big issue as some countries do not having water for generating electricity. When we are using heaters in our homes then we have to use those heaters which save more electricity.
