Danish green solutions are popular abroad
22 March 2012
Danish green organisations are experiencing an increase in interest from foreign companies, writes the Danish news media, DR
This is the conclusion of Marianne Lubanski, Head of Copenhagen Cleantech Cluster, which is part of Copenhagen Capacity.
- We are getting more and more inquiries, but we are not approaching foreign actors ourselves. They are coming to us and knocking on our door, seeking solutions and advice on solving cleantech-related issues, she says.
Cooperation between regions, companies and universities has created 250 Danish jobs over the past year.
- Our latest visit was from Turkey, where they have succeeded in finding 23 billion euros to invest in energy efficiency, and Denmark is the first country they have visited in their search for partners, Marianna Lubanski continues.
She emphasises that the interest in Danish cleantech competences is coming from all over the world. Recently, a delegation from Abu Dhabi sought to purchase part of the Technical University of Denmark. It ended with the two parties embarking on a collaborative venture.
This week, Copenhagen Cleantech Cluster is hosting the Smart City Conference in the Danish capital, at which 30 international enterprises have gathered to consider green solutions and investment opportunities.
