Denmark and Japan sign offshore wind partnership

Japan's offshore wind market is still in its infancy. As part of the two countries' cooperation, the Danish Foreign Ministry now sends an energy advisor to its embassy in in the East Asian nation to offer advice on framework conditions for large-scale offshore wind, possibly leading to more exports to Japan.

From the very beginning, Denmark has been a forerunner within offshore wind, and crucial experience gleaned underway will now be shared with Japan, whose own offshore wind industry is only now beginning to stir, says Danish Minister of Climate, Energy and Utilities Dan Jørgensen (Social Democratic Party) in a press statement unveiling the partnership.

"If we're going to seriously advance the climate agenda, we'll need the real big global players. We must inspire, but we also have to deliver concrete solutions. Our new collaboration with Japan is a very fine example of this approach. This is a global opportunity to accelerate the transition from coal to wind in a country where black energy remains widespread and at the same time open new markets for Danish companies with green products on their shelves," Jørgensen says in the press release.
