In 2016 Green Capacity will continue to promote and facilitate partnerships and joint projects between Danish and Russian stakeholders within energy efficiency, environmental projects, and innovative solutions for the industry. By now, we have several exciting activities coming up for the first half of 2016 – see our upcoming events that all stresses our continued confidence in Danish and Russian collaboration.
Green Capacity is a platform initiated to share best available practices and solutions from Danish companies and administrations to create awareness and facilitate collaboration within energy efficiency, environmental projects, and innovative solutions for the industry in several sectors including; buildings and industries, oil and gas, district heating, water and wastewater treatment, machinery and technology and much more in Russia.
The state programme of the Russian Federation, Energy efficiency and development of energy sector, valid from 2013 to 2020 has entailed a rapid development of the energy and environment sector in Russia, as well as increased demand for technology and knowledge on sustainable energy and environmental solutions. In addition, important substitution and government support to the agriculture and food industry has created a positive shift in demand for foreign best available technologies – as a result, you will see that many of our activities is reflected in this demand.
Throughout four decades, Denmark has been widely recognized for its high standards and remarkable results within environmental protection, energy efficiency, and innovative solutions for the industry. Danish companies possess great experience and knowledge on renewable energy and sustainable and highly innovative solutions, thus offering to share knowledge, as well as collaborate with Russian companies and administrations on achieving cost reductions as a consequence of efficient utilization of resources.

The Green Capacity Structure
The platform has one main purpose – “being the main network for Danish technological solutions in various Russian sectors”. The structure constitutes of several sector groups which together forms the Green Capacity Club.
The Green Capacity Club currently has five sector groups, although this concept can be expanded into new sector groups upon request. Current sector groups are: Energy & Environment, Machinery & Technology, Food Technology, Oil & Gas, and Water & Waste.
This structure gives us a flexible approach towards our existing and potential partners and members. As the Russian economy is going through a reformation and competes in a rapid changing environment this structure allows us to facilitate the very best environment for partnerships and joint projects between Danish and Russian stakeholders.
