On May the 20th, Denmark hosted an Offshore Wind Summit where European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen participated with the German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Belgian Prime Minister Alexander de Croo, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen. They agreed on a declaration where the North Sea offshore wind plays an important role in strengthening the EU’s energy security. Moreover, they wanted to expand the North Sea offshore wind capacity of the four countries to 65 GW by 2030 and 150 GW by 2050.
The Esbjerg declaration provides great possibilities for business within the renewable industry in Denmark. It is planned to replace fossil fuels with European renewable energy from the North Sea such as offshore wind and green hydrogen. This ensures more affordable, secure, and sustainable energy.
