Denmark – An attractive hub for Green Business

When: 24 November 2020 - This event has taken place. WATCH IT ON DEMAND BELOW.

Where: Online

Take a deep dive into how Denmark became an attractive hub for the wind industry. With a long standing history in integrating renewable energy sources, Denmark has established itself as a thought leader in the transitioning towards carbon neutrality.

In this GREEN INSIGHTS you will get a sound understanding of some of the policy frameworks fighting climate change and the green transition in Denmark. Denmark has recently enacted climate legislation aiming at reducing carbon emissions by 70 percent in 2030 compared with the level in 1990. As a first-mover in wind energy, Denmark commissioned its first offshore wind farm in 1991 and the sector plays a key role in the current and future Danish energy system.

You will get to hear from both the private and public side, and the dynamics needed to drive the development. We will go on a virtual tour to the premises of a key player in the Danish wind sector – Port of Esbjerg, the world’s largest base port for offshore wind activities, where more than 80 percent of the total European offshore wind capacity is shipped off from.

You are encouraged to ask questions along the way.
