China: New website tells about the Danish-Chinese cooperation

The Danish Energy Agency launches a website about the Danish-Chinese cooperation on climate, energy and building

In connection with the Chinese president’s visit to Denmark, starting today, the Danish Energy Agency launches a special website about the Danish-Chinese cooperation on climate, energy and building.

This Saturday the Danish minister for Climate, Energy and Building Martin Lidegaard will sign three memorandums of understandings:  

  1. Agreement with National Energy Administration which strengthens the Danish-Chinese cooperation on encouragement of renewable energy; the agreement confirms an increasing Chinese demand for Danish experiences in the field of renewable energy. 
  2. Agreement with Ministry of Science and Technology which will encourage Danish-Chinese partnerships within research and development in relation to renewable energy, energy efficiency and smart grids including studying the possibilities for establishing a joint innovation centre. 
  3. Agreement with Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development which strengthens the cooperation between China and Denmark regarding low-energy building, including development and promotion of energy efficiency, sustainable building and energy efficient building materials.

Among other the memorandums of understandings add to the already well-established cooperation between the Danish Energy Agency and the new China National Renewable Energy Centre (CNREC) that was launched February this year.

This cooperation is further described on the Danish Energy Agency’s new website. We also refer to CNREC’s website and the Danish Embassy’s presentation of the Sino-Danish Renewable Energy Development Programme -13.
