The Danish energy system was build more that 30 years ago and is now retiring. The Danish society therefore is moving towards a tilting point, where they will have to make some fundamental decisions about the future energy system. This project processes and analyses the opportunities and barriers in the transition of the Danish energy system, focussing on sustainability, security of supply and competition in the electricity-sector. It is argued that the transition needs to be based on the objective rather than the existing situation, in which the current problems originated from. From that perspective the project discusses the implementing of available Renewable Energy sources and the consequences towards the existing CHP-plants and the relevant stakeholders in the electricity market. The project concludes that there is a need for a decentralised and flexible electricity production, which compliments the fluctuating nature of wind energy. Furthermore, an electricity-marked based on competition rather than monopoly, will contribute to the security of supply and the development of a much-needed intelligent electricity system. At last the project processes the transition from a Multi-Level Governance-perspective, which states that these milestones in the development towards the overall objective, will have to be supported strategically by the federal level(EU), the national level(DK), the local level(Municipalities) and the relevant stakeholders.
