Regulating Energy and Natural Resources

This chapter discusses energy regulation in Denmark. Topics covered include the Danish energy sector, the energy reform, co-regulation of the monopoly parts of the electricity and gas industries, and the use of agreements in public regulation. It shows that fundamental changes are taking place in government regulation of the Danish energy sector. As in other countries, the government is reassessing its role as regulator of private and public activities within a framework of increased focus on the market, changed trading patterns, other political priorities such as security, climate change, more participation by the public in decision-making, and use of alternative regulatory instruments.

Keywords:   Denmark, energy sector, public regulation, energy sector, co-regulation, monopoly
