The state of Michigan has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU)
with the nation of Denmark's Ministry of Climate and Energy to explore
development and share experiences in the areas of renewable energy,
energy efficiency, and green job creation, according to the Michigan
governor's office. "Thanks to our investments 20 years ago, Denmark
today has a thriving clean-tech industry that account for about 10
percent of our total exports and is a major source of employment -- in
urban centers as well as in rural areas," says Connie Hedegaard,
Denmark's Minister for Climate and Energy. "Through pragmatic policy,
we turned crisis into opportunity -- and the Midwest region in the U.S.
can do the same." In one of the first initiatives of the MoU, the
Embassy of Denmark will sponsor a group of business leaders and
scientists from Michigan who will travel to Denmark to study the
country's energy technologies and policies.
