BROOKLYN, NY -- "A more resilient and energy efficient New York" is the vision of the House of Green exhibition which the Danish Cleantech Hub in New York opens today, showcasing state of the art cleantech solutions.
Danish Cleantech Hub is an initiative backed by the Confederation of Danish Industry and State of Green, in collaboration with New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering through the Urban Future Lab.
"We are thrilled to announce that the Danish Cleantech Hub is opening the House of Green exhibition at the Urban Future Lab, New York City's pioneer resiliency technology incubator," says Kyle Kimball, President of the New York City Economic Development Corporation. "This partnership with the Confederation of Danish Industry, thanks to the C-40 Green Growth Network, will strengthen our city's cooperation with some of Europe's most forward thinking resiliency experts. By sharing these opportunities between leading Danish and NYC companies, this collaboration will help us solve our collective climate challenges in faster and more intelligent ways," says Kyle Kimball, president of NYCEDC.
The partnership with New York is a great opportunity for Danish cleantech companies who have emerged as global leaders in energy efficiency, climate adaptation and resilient solutions after decades of political focus on sustainability.
There is no doubt that the expertise and know-how of the Danish companies in the Danish Cleantech Hub matches New York's ambition to reduce energy consumption and make the city more resilient to changing weather conditions. The Danish Cleantech Hub provides a single point of entry for all cleantech related activities between Denmark and New York, says CEO Karsten Dybvad, Confederation of Danish Industry, one of the main partners behind the exhibition and the Danish Cleantech Hub.
The Danish government is thrilled about the growing focus on Danish cleantech solutions in New York.
New York, Copenhagen and Denmark each have put forward ambitious climate plans where cutting edge cleantech solutions are key to reaching the goals. This exhibition is a strong new platform for co-operation, focusing on new cleantech solutions which can make New York an even greater place to live, says ambassador Jarl Frijs-Madsen, Consul General of Denmark in New York.
The exhibit will be a permanent part of the Danish Cleantech Hub's installation at the New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering, Urban Future Lab. Contact Frida Ferdinand via email at [email protected] for a tour of the exhibition.
