“It is a great tribute to Denmark and a great platform to promote Danish energy companies in Africa,” stated Kristian Jensen, the minister for foreign affairs.

“The organisers selected Denmark because of our unique experience with investing in renewable energy projects in African countries like Kenya and South Africa. And we are proud to be a showcase.”

The conference in Copenhagen is organised by EnergyNet, an expert host for power generation forums, and the main theme is expected to revolve around development finance institutions.
