Denmark plans to initiate broader government-to-government cooperation with Turkey in the areas of energy, environment and water, according to senior Danish official on Wednesday.

Rasmus Helveg Petersen, the Danish Minister of Energy, Climate and Building told Anadolu Agency in an interview that the Danish government launched a new initiative to promote long-term bilateral relations between the public authorities in Denmark and selected partner countries including Turkey.

He advised that Denmark and Turkey already have a Memorandum of Understanding on energy from 2013.

“Renewable energy, and especially wind energy, will be an important part of this cooperation. I also see  great potential for cooperation on challenges related to growing urbanization, including energy efficiency in buildings and sustainable housing,” he said.
