Slowly, but surely, we are collectively coming together to shift the world’s energy supply from fossil to renewable, from black to green.
How did Denmark get here?
Not by coincidence - quite the opposite. The efforts and ideas of Danish wind innovators have been supported by national policies since the 1970s.
As costs continue to drop, investing in clean energy is no longer just a matter of doing the right thing – it has become the smart thing to do.
Just take the world’s first Energy Islands as one example of innovation underway - a paradigm shift in the way we build offshore wind.
This pioneering initiative is a perfect example of how we are thinking big. Our aim is to share Denmark’s green energy resources with the rest of Europe.
Traditionally, we have seen a national approach based on regular offshore wind farms sending electricity home to domestic shores. However, we aim to go far beyond national borders - to share our green energy resources and to allow energy to go where it is needed the most.
Regional cooperation is clearly the way forward – a common theme across so many energy and climate initiatives.
