As a part of an international climate and energy actionable knowledge exchange, i-SUSTAIN is gathering together experts from Denmark, Sweden and Washington state in Olympia and Seattle from April 11-12, 2016. The April convening focuses on district energy and combined heat and power, with this bi-directional knowledge exchange on climate and energy continuing in 2016 with other key action areas.
An open-to-the-public meeting with the delegates is being offered in Olympia (April 11th) and Seattle (April 12th):
“How carbon pricing built the clean energy industry in Denmark”
Denmark is a world leader in renewable and sustainable energy technologies, products and services. These are major exports that have created new industries and jobs, and have helped Denmark become energy independent. Many people don’t realize the great transformation Denmark has gone through. Not too long ago, it imported fossil fuels for 98% of its energy needs, and canned hams were its biggest export. What a difference a few decades make!
Presenters include Jakob Bjerregaard of the Embassy of Denmark and Anna Chittum of Gridkraft/ACEEE.
