Doing more with less. Cooperation towards an energy efficient Southeast Asia

In Denmark, energy intensity in industry has more than halved from 1990 to 2018. In fact, since 1980, Denmark has managed to decouple economic growth from its overall energy consumption: Danish GDP has increased by 100 per cent, while Denmark’s energy consumption has only increased by 6 per cent and water consumption has decreased by 40 per cent. This proves that it is possible to create growth without a corresponding increase in energy use. The cheapest energy is the energy you don’t use.
