Fukushima – Denmark: Leading a green energy transition

When: 21 April 15.00-17.00 JST / 08.00-10.00 CET

Where: Zoom

After the Great East Japan Earthquake and the nuclear power accident in 2011, Fukushima Prefecture placed a higher priority on promoting renewable energy to drive a safe, secure and sustainable development.

Today, Fukushima and Denmark share high ambitions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create green and sustainable energy systems. Denmark aims to reduce CO2-emissions by 70% in 2030, where Fukushima aims to have 100% of their energy needs covered by renewables in 2040.

This online webinar will gather stakeholders from both Fukushima and Denmark to illuminate the path towards renewable energy systems and create a platform to discuss future collaborations.  The program will have end with a signing of a collaboration agreement between EnergyAgency.FUKUSHIMA and State of Green.
