Renewable Energy Delegation to Iceland 2021
Denmark aims to increase its international cooperation in clean energy solutions, rebuilding economy while promoting the climate agenda. Together with the Danish Embassy in Iceland, the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI) will lead a business delegation of Danish companies and partners in Iceland on green hydrogen.
Iceland and Denmark are both countries with high ambitions on the green agenda. Denmark aims to achieve a 70% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and phase out the use of all fossil fuels by 2050. Iceland aims to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030 and reach carbon neutrality by 2040. Power-to-X and green energy solutions are part of the way towards achieving these target.
DKK 5.274 excl. VAT
The price is calculated on a basis of a minimum of 10 participating companies and a 75 per cent subsidy from the Trade Council of Denmark.
Due to the special circumstances of the pandemic, the business delegation will not be publicly announced until early autumn 2021. Business organisations, companies and other stakeholders are asked to refrain from mentioning the visit and the trade promotion in all external communications, including on websites, social media etc. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will notify all involved parties, when the public announcement goes out and the embargo on communication is lifted.
The delegates will participate in an interesting programme of networking events, seminars and site visits. They will meet customers and potential partners and gain insights into new market opportunities in Iceland. The visit provides an excellent opportunity for Danish companies to acquire and nurture business contacts in Iceland and to meet with business representatives, organisations, public authorities and media.
