Trump does not stop DONG bet in the US
DONG Energy calls Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris agreement for "a step in the wrong direction." However, the company continues its efforts to sell offshore wind projects to the United States and receives support from the states.
DONG Energy does not see negative consequences of President Donald Trump's announcement that the United States will withdraw from the Paris agreement for its US projects.
"Renewable energy development takes place at the state level, where many states have ambitious targets to redirect energy supply from black to green, including expanding ocean winds. The political reactions so far, including the Republican Governor In Massachusetts, where we are working on developing offshore projects, continue with strong and unwavering support to continue the green change," says Jakob Askou Bøss, Strategic and Communications Director of DONG Energy to Maritime Denmark.
The company deplores the President's announcement, but does not think it will stop the green change.
"Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris agreement is a step in the wrong direction. There is a need that all countries stand together to address the serious climate change that threatens global ecosystems. However, we do not see that the president's decision will stop the green change. There is broad political support for the Paris agreement from all other countries in the agreement, while at the same time the green technologies have become so cheap that there is good economy in continuing the green change," says Jakob Askou Bøss.
