Denmark is a small and stable market where green technology has been centered politically and socially since the 1970s. Danish companies are world-class within clean technologies - particularly within wind energy, district heating and low-carbon building and design. Canadian companies can be successful in the market by partnering with incumbent companies, if they have something innovative and different which is not already available. Carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) and hydrogen are areas where Canada has a lot to teach Denmark and these technologies are not as advanced in Denmark, compared to Canada. Denmark is home to many major players within clean technologies and these companies tend to be quite open to meeting, if you have the right product or solution.
