Ambitious green goals on renewable energy and the heating sector
Denmark and the Netherlands have strong trade relations and a shared interest in a green energy transition. Both countries have an ambitious green agenda. To combat climate change, the Netherlands is striving to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 49 % in 2030 and 95 % by 2050 compared to 1990-levels.

The Dutch green transition is well underway, as large wind farms are built offshore and solar energy is installed to meet the rising demand for a green power. Furthermore, the Netherlands aims to make their heating systems sustainable by phasing out natural gas in households by 2050.

Partnership agreement broadens the scope of collaboration
With the partnership agreement, Denmark and the Netherlands have strengthened the collaboration in several areas of the energy sectors. Knowledge sharing on sustainable heating systems is a cornerstone of the partnership, while the agreement broadens the scope by including offshore wind energy, energy efficiency and Power-to-X.

The Netherlands is one of the biggest export markets for Danish energy technology
The Netherlands is one of the most important export markets for Danish energy technology. In 2020, export of Danish energy technologies peaked with a total of 13,3 bill. DKK (1,8 bill. EUR). Over the past five years, the Netherlands ranks as the fourth biggest export market with an average annual export of 6,3 bill. DKK (850 mill. EUR).
