[월간수소경제 박상우 기자] Korea and Denmark sought ways to cooperate in clean energy fields such as offshore wind power and hydrogen.
The Embassy of Denmark in Korea and the Korea Wind Power Industry Association held the ‘Korea-Denn Green Business Forum’ at the 2023 Gifu Industry International Expo held in 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 30 trillion won of clean hydrogen by 2030. To this end, Danish Energy Agency, which establishes and implements the government’s energy policy, Energinet, a state-run grid operator, and EIFO, an export credit agency, participated 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, 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 consisted of a contract signing ceremony between companies, an introduction to green transition policies of the governments of the two countries, and a panel discussion with companies.
In the first session, a signing ceremony was held for the ‘2b & 4 offshore wind power submarine cable supply contract’ between Osted, a Danish offshore wind power company, and LS Cable & System. Then, a time was prepared to introduce government policies under the theme of ‘policies and regulatory frameworks related to offshore wind power and clean hydrogen for green transition’.
To this end, the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy introduced the current government’s regulatory framework, and the Danish Energy Agency introduced the history and current status of political agreements for a green transition.
Energinet shared its experience and grid planning in integrating and operating renewable energy into the Danish power grid. In the last session, a panel discussion was held under the theme of ‘Risk Mitigation and Supply Chain Establishment for 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 cooperation in the future.”
