The Korea Energy Agency signed an implementation agreement for renewable energy industry promotion with the Danish Energy Agency in Seoul on May 21.

According to the agreement, the two agencies are going to work more closely with each other in the industry by sharing their policies and case studies related to renewable energy development, conducting marine spatial planning together, sharing their policy experiences for more public awareness of renewable energy, and promoting exchange between South Korean and Danish enterprises and organizations engaged in onshore and offshore wind power generation.

Denmark established its first long-term vision for renewable energy development in 1976. In 2011, it came up with Energy Strategy 2050 in order to consume no non-renewable energy from 2050.

The Korea Energy Agency and the Embassy of Denmark in Seoul held a seminar on energy transition and wind power generation after the signing ceremony. The seminar was attended by more than 100 persons, including Danish Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary, with the topics including the wind power industry of South Korea and techniques and policies for more economical renewable energy-based power generation.
