Cross-country cooperation on green transition
Denmark cooperates with several prioritized high-growth developing countries about a reduction of the global emission of greenhouse gases and ensuring economic growth.
Cooperation with emerging economies in the world
The Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate collaborates bilaterally with China, Mexico, South-Africa, Vietnam, Ukraine, Indonesia, and Turkey. These countries experience important economic growth and have an important potential to lower their emission of greenhouse gases.
The Ministry's consultancy makes the countries able to prepare for a future with a higher demand for energy. This is made by making the energy systems of various countries more efficient and by restructuring the energy production to more sustainable energy. At the same time, Danish experiences as to renewable energy is passed on to countries that represent 1/3 of the global CO2 emission and 2 billion energy consumers.
The Danish energy model is the starting point
The Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate bases its consultancy on Danish experience as to efficiency improvement and transition of the energy system. The so-called Danish energy model works as an inspiration as to how countries can procure cleaner and more stable energy systems by means of efficient control of the market.
On that background, we give advice and consultancy within the field of wind, bio-mass- integration of electricity, energy streamlining, district heating, modelling and scenario analyses.
Global cooperation with tangible results
Our consultancy has obtained a lot of successful results. The results confirm that the Danish energy model pays off when you want to make the energy system greener and at the same time maintain economic growth. One of the results is the establishing of a knowledge centre in Beijing, where Danish and Chinese experts work together on the development of analyses within sustainable energy in China. The Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate has also contributed to the mapping of a wind atlas in South-Africa and Mexico and to the development of a financing mechanism that supports energy efficiency in small and medium-sized companies in Vietnam.
Furthermore, Denmark focuses on long-term energy planning and scenario modelling in the collaborating countries. Flexibility in the energy system is among the highly demanded Danish experiences.
