UK Energy Opportunities II – a new paradigm on the horizon

London, Monday, 10 September 2018

Now is an exciting time for Nordic energy businesses to pursue projects and partnerships in the United Kingdom.

"The UK government is taking major steps towards a green energy transition and Danish businesses have a lot to offer in terms of knowhow, experience and technologies. I am thrilled that Danish and UK energy sector companies will meet and discuss opportunities for collaboration and trade at the energy conference in London on November 8 2018.", Lars Christian Lilleholt, Danish Minister of Energy, Utilities and Climate
