The Danish Government have set a 2050 target that Denmark should use 100% renewable energy in both the energy and transport sectors. The Danish building directive have called for a 2020 target of a 75% reduction in energy consumption for new buildings compared to the 2006 levels. The overall target is to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions by 40% compared to 1990.

A residential building can be classified as ‘Building Class 2020’ when the overall requirement for solar gain for heating, ventilation and hot water per m2 of heated floor area does not exceed 20 kWh annually. This will help to ensure that the homes are tough, well insulated and have a high-performing building envelope. The ‘Building Class 2020’ is the highest energy class in Denmark. The below table provides an overview of the overall energy requirements for new buildings and includes a comparison between the previous classes 2010 and 2015 and the current class 2020;
