Danish and Chinese companies, media and experts participated yesterday at the Danish Embassy at the official opening reception of the two day seminar, China Wind Power, which is taking place in Beijing on Oct 19-21.

The Reception was hosted by the Danish Embassy and Invest in Denmark and co-organised by China Wind Energy Association and China Renewable Energy Industry Association.
The objective of the reception was to help Chinese wind power companies understand the competences of the Danish wind power industry. The purpose was to facilitate collaboration between Chinese and Danish companies.
The Danish Ambassador-at-large Ritt Bjerregaard spoke earlier today at the opening of China Wind Power were she stressed the long tradition Denmark has with renewable energy.
“Denmark has a long history of producing clean and renewable power from wind. I am old enough to remember the car free Sundays back in the early 1970’ies, when the sudde increase on fossil fuels price let to a severe economic crisis and shortness of oil. Since then the development of clean, efficient and economic means of wind power production has been a cornerstone in the energy policy of all Danish governments. I am proud to say that the Danish wind industry is a world leader within this field,” says Ritt Bjerregarrd, Denmark’s Ambassador-at-Large and continued talking about future goals:
“In 2035 the entire electricity and heat consumption must be covered by sustainable energy production and in 2050 Denmark will be a 100% fossil free society. In China the 12 five year plan continues the substantial focus on wind power development. I am certain that the Danish experience and the Danish wind power solutions will be useful to China in the effort to fulfil the high targets of both 2015 and 2020.”
After the speak Ritt Bjerregaard visited many of the Danish stands – among then Vestas, Aluwind, Danfoss and KR Wind A/S. There are more than 30 Danish firms represented at the wind exhibition, which is been held for the fourth time in China.
