Over the years, the U.S. and Denmark have formed a strong relation, where, among other things, sustainability and the renewable energy transition have become an integral part of the trans-Atlantic collaboration. Denmark is a pioneer within this field, and I look forward to contribute to sharing the Danish knowhow and technology for the benefit for a more sustainable environment.
