Debate on nuclear power in Denmark


World leaders have gathered in Brussels this week to discuss how they can triple the energy produced via nuclear power. Sweden, Finland, Poland, and France are among the EU member states that committed to this goal after the COP28 climate summit in Dubai. Meanwhile, in Denmark, the political class is split.

  • 55% of people in Denmark support the use of nuclear power. 
  • Socialdemokratiet (Social Democrats) prefer Denmark to focus on solar and wind power, as that is our specialization. 
  • DF (Conservative Nationalists) and Liberal Alliance (Libertarians) are pro-nuclear power and want it introduced as soon as possible. 
  • Radikale Venstre (Social Liberals) and Venstre (Liberals) admit that nuclear power is necessary but say it will take too long for Denmark to adopt it (15-17 years), so we should focus on solar and wind.
