10. september 2018: Ensuring Security of Supply and Green Energy Transition

Denmark and Poland in the European Energy Union

There is a growing collaboration between Denmark and Poland in the energy sector. The Danish energy industry is deeply involved in Poland as a market for conventional and green energy solutions and as a platform for manufacturing.

The Baltic Pipe Project will allow transport of gas from Norway to Denmark, Poland and neighboring countries and thereby contribute to Europe’s security of supply which is an important goal of the European Energy Union.

Poland’s regulation is increasingly favoring a green transition with new initiatives in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy. New changes are underway in the Renewable Energy Sources Act, paving the way for more wind power and other renewables in Poland.

In December, Poland will host UN’s Climate Summit, COP24, in Katowice. The meeting is expected to attract 30,000 delegates from 190 countries including politicians, representatives of non-governmental organizations, scientific community and business sector.

Both Poland and Denmark contribute to the realization of the European Energy Union. The new Baltic Pipe Project is a central element in this along with the joint efforts to increase energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources.

Join this conference to get an update on the latest developments and opportunities in Poland and get inspiration from companies engaged in Danish-Polish collaboration and seeking to expand the partnership further.

The conference is followed by two afternoon meetings:


Energinets forum for Danish gas customers. The meeting will provide an overview of current developments in the gas sector in Denmark, including the expected progress and effects of the rehabilitation of the Tyra Field. You can read more about Industriforum and the afternoon meeting here.

COP24 Company Briefing

DI and State of Green are convening a business group to attend COP24 in Katowice, Poland on 3-14 December 2018. Join this meeting to learn more about the themes of this year’s climate negotiations from Danish and Polish negotiators. Further, you will get an update on your possibilities for taking part in the Danish platform and exhibition in Katowice during COP24. You can read more about COP24 on their official webpage here.

Baltic Pipe Project: Crossing borders for secure, affordable and sustainable energy

The Baltic Pipe Project is a strategic gas infrastructure project with the goal of creating a new gas supply corridor in the European market. The Baltic Pipe Project will allow transport of gas from Norway to the Danish and Polish markets, as well as to end-users in neighboring countries. At the same time, the Baltic Pipe Project will enable the supply of gas from Poland to the Danish and Swedish markets.

The project is being developed in collaboration between the Danish gas and electricity transmission system operator Energinet and the Polish gas transmission system operator GAZ-SYSTEM.
