In 2019, the Danish government formed 14 climate partnerships representing the different sectors of the Danish economy. These partnerships build on the Danish tradition for public-private partnerships and recognise the private sector as a central actor in all climate efforts.


From energy and utility, maritime, and aviation, to industry, defence, and finance the partnerships were tasked with exploring how each sector could contribute to CO₂e reductions. This needed to be done in a just way, while supporting Danish  competitiveness, export, jobs, welfare, and prosperity. Collectively the 14 partnerships present more than 400 recommendations for future initiatives.


Hydrogen and hydrogen-based fuels are seen as key components in the green transition and for new job creation for a new green industry. The Climate Partnership for Energy and Utility recommended targeted initiatives for scaling up a hydrogen industry and focusing on sectorial integration, for example by utilising excess heat from electrolysis in district heating.
