Energy security

The maintenance of a secure and stable energy supply is vital to a modern society

A stable and secure energy supply is essential in a modern society, and many of society's vital functions are vulnerable to failures in power supply both in the short and long term.

The energy sector must be prepared to act quickly in the event of disruptions in supply and in various crisis situations. The individual energy sectors have organised and put in place preparedness and in an emergency situation this will ensure prompt and appropriate action.

The day-to-day running of the administration of preparedness tasks is largely delegated to the Danish Energy Agency and Energinet.dk.
