By Mehdi Sepahvand –- Trend:

Danish green energy companies are beginning to open offices in Iran as the prospects of cooperation between Denmark and Iran are growing, said Harold Hardstone, chairman of the Danish Energy Companies Association.

“We are holding talks and some Danish companies are settling in Iran,” he told ILNA news agency December 21.

Green energy comprises less than 0.01 of Iran’s energy basket. However, the government has plans to add 7,500 megawatts of green power to its output which will include wind and solar power.

Hardstone said Danish companies are willing to cooperate Iran.

“We have such high technology in this field and I think the two countries can have good cooperation in the future,” he stated.

Denmark started tapping renewable energy sources in the 1980s. Currently a great part of the country’s power output comes from wind power.
