Sharing Danish experiences can help multiply the effect of previous learnings and contribute to accelerated development of new offshore wind markets to push global green transition.
The global green transition has never been more urgent. With Denmark’s position as a global leader in offshore wind, sharing experiences can help multiply the effect of previous learnings and accelerate the development of new markets to push the global green transition. Based on more than 30 years of experience, the Danish Energy Agency and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark have launched the virtual platform www.offshorewindtour.org to share Danish offshore wind experiences with the rest of the world.
”Upscaling offshore wind internationally can contribute to energy security, a just energy transition, and decarbonisation including green hydrogen and power-to-X. Denmark only emits around 0.1% of the world’s CO2 emissions and our national climate efforts cannot stand alone. By sharing our offshore wind experiences, we can help other countries making it easier, less costly, and less time consuming to develop an offshore wind industry and reduce their CO2 emissions”, says Dan Jørgensen, Minister for Climate, Energy and Utilities.
The virtual wind platform is targeted at Government authorities in emerging offshore wind markets. The Danish Energy Agency already cooperates with several of these countries, including the United States, Korea, Japan, France, and India. The platform is the latest tool in the governmental partnerships offering a wide variety of features such as:
The platform is available in English, Japanese, and Korean.
An important precondition for succeeding with offshore wind is good regulatory frameworks in order to expand the offshore wind market and attract investors successfully which is a Danish stronghold. The agency’s own wind energy experts are among the many contributors together with industry experts representing key areas to a successful offshore wind development. The platform invites people to learn and understand more about the Danish approach and experiences within offshore wind.
“Not all our partners have the possibility to come to Denmark and helicopter to an offshore transformer platform. By launching a virtual wind platform, we can reach a much broader audience. Of course, the virtual tour cannot be compared with a physical tour, but the experience and understanding can take place on the visitor’s terms independent of time zones, resources etc. It is the closest we get to an almost real-life experience and the platform is an important tool to inspire for an urgent global green transition based on offshore wind”, says Kristoffer Böttzauw, Director General of the Danish Energy Agency.
