The team’s report was launched Thursday morning, and the vision is clear: Danish Companies should be leading globally in providing blue and green solutions. The report also suggests key focus area and actions that need to be taken to reach this vision:
“The four key focus areas include better support to startups, increase of the innovation in the blue and green sectors, better conditions for large-scale testing as well as better and faster access to user data,” says Hanne Christensen, Managing Director, Ramboll Water.
The Danish water sector is already competitive on a global scale. However, if Danish water companies are to retain their leading position in the future, they need to focus even more on developing digital solutions based on thorough insights and data. Hanne Christensen elaborates on the need for more flexible access to data:
“Better access to data – as for instance user data from water utilities – will enable us to develop more customised solutions that meet the needs of both the utilities and the end-users. Obviously, this should be done in compliance with data protection policies, but some changes to the existing regulation will be needed.”
The full report from the governmental advisory board for Green Energy and Environmental Technology was presented in the Danish Parliament to ministers, governmental representatives and the press. The ambitions and recommendations were well-received, and the Danish Government expressed its commitment to increase the focus on blue and green growth in the future.
