import energy from outside. Instead, the festival use only the latest low

CO2PENHAGEN is an ambitious and concrete example of how even large events
can become CO2 neutral. The technologies already exist - we just need the
courage and ambition to utilise them!
With its positive example, CO2PENHAGEN shows how we as a community can be
much more ambitious in our CO2 targets than we are today and how we can do
something about climate problems now.
If we can do it, everybody can do it!
