[월간수소경제 박상우 기자] Korea and Denmark sought ways to cooperate in areas of clean energy such as offshore wind and hydrogen.
The Embassy of Denmark in Korea and the Korean Wind Power Industry Association hosted the ‘Korea-Denn Green Business Forum’ at the Gifu International Industry Expo 2023 held at BEXCO, Busan on the 25th.
The forum was designed to strengthen Korea-Denn cooperation to achieve the Korean government’s goal of expanding 14.3GW of offshore wind power and gaining 30 trillion of clean hydrogen by 2030. To this end, the Danish Energy Agency, which establishes and implements the government’s energy policy, Energinet, a state-run grid operator, and EIFO, an export credit agency, participate in the project.
In the Danish industry, Bech-Bruun, CIP/COP, COWI, DNV, LAUTEC, Maersk Supply Service, Orsted, Plesner, Vestas (Vestas) and other energy-related companies participated in large numbers. In Korea, the 2050 Carbon Neutral Green Growth Committee, the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy, Kim & Chang, Shilla Precision, SK Eco Plant, LS Cable, and Jeju National University participated.
The Korea-Den Green Business Forum included an agreement signing ceremony between companies, an introduction to the green transition policies of the two countries’ governments, and a panel discussion with companies.
In the first session, a signing ceremony was held for the ‘offshore wind power submarine cable supply contract 2b and 4’ between Osted, a Danish offshore wind energy company, and LS Cable & System. Then, time was prepared to present the government’s policies under the theme ‘policies and regulatory frameworks relating to offshore wind energy and clean hydrogen for a green transition’.
To this end, the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy presented the government’s current regulatory framework, and the Danish Energy Agency presented the history and current status of political agreements for a green transition.
Energinet shared its experience and grid planning in integrating and implementing renewable energy into the Danish power grid. In the last session, a panel discussion was held under the theme ‘Risk Mitigation and Supply Chain Organization for the Korean Offshore Wind Power Complex Development Project’, and energy-related organizations and companies from both countries participated.
In his opening remarks, Danish Ambassador to Korea Sven Ohling said, “Korea and Denmark are important partners for securing clean energy and developing related industrial ecosystems.” There was, and I look forward to more collaboration in the future.”
