DI Energi Arrangementer og netværk


Presentations and dialogue with experts from companies, embassies and institutions

Energy efficiency is a topic of growing relevance as still more companies strive for improved energy and resource efficiency in line with increasing global targets. Denmark’s experience and Danish solutions are in high demand abroad – and Danish companies are increasingly using energy efficiency as a selling point for their products and services.

During Green Energy Export Day, there will be workshops highlighting the opportunities within energy efficiency in France and US, respectively. In these countries there is a manifest demand and growing awareness for Danish solutions, and a range of activities and partnerships to support Danish exports.

The third workshop follows up on the recent IEA Global Conference on Energy Efficiency, which was successfully held in Sønderborg in June with strong international participation and business interaction at the EE Solutions Summit.

The Danish embassy in France is spearheading initiatives to enable Danish companies to access the market and sell their EE solution to the large tender projects – or as a second-tier supplier to other main contractors. For EE in buildings, look out and take part in the upcoming events Batimat and Interclima on 4-5 October in Paris. For EE in industry, you can engage in the Sustainable Industry Alliance to get access to potential French customers.

Market workshop #2 from 13.30-14.25

In the beginning of August, the Senate passed a comprehensive economic plan, which will result in driving even more green investments in the US. Experts have estimated the climate provisions of the plan will reduce US’s planet-heating emissions by about 40% by 2030, compared with 2005 levels.

The US is Denmark's largest export market with Danish companies exporting for more than 200 billion dollars to the American market in 2021, but energy exports are not driving these numbers yet - but the potential is huge.

This workshop will focus on energy efficiency and the opportunities for Danish companies in light of the recent political developments.

EE Solutions Summit 2022 – Next Steps

Market workshop #3 from 15.00-16.00

The EE Solutions Summit took place on 9 June in Sønderborg on the occasion of IEA’s 7th Annual Conference on Energy Efficiency. The Summit brought together 400 international and Danish stakeholders discussing EE in buildings, industry, transport, heating and PtX. But what were the actual outcomes of IEA’s Conference and the Solutions Summit? And how should we follow up to ensure concrete action on the EE agenda – and for our exports in this field?

Join this workshop to hear the reflections and discuss the next steps on the international EE Agenda – and the business opportunities it opens.
