Danish State Visit to Croatia, 21 – 24 October 2014
On the occasion of the Danish State Visit by Her Majesty the Queen Margrethe II and His Royal Highness Prince Consort Henrik.

Over the next ten years Croatia’s dependence on imported energy is expected to grow, due to the expected exhaustion of Croatia’s own oils and gas resources. In the same period, energy demand is expected to grow by 3 per cent annually. This will create a need for investments in for example construction of additional oil and gas pipelines, for liquefied terminal and gas storages as well as for modernization in the district heating sector. The estimated total investments in the many projects in the energy and energy efficiency sector will exceed 14 billion EUR. Croatia’s membership of EU in July 2013 has increased the attention on the environmental sector. Croatia will need to invest an estimated total of almost 8 billion EUR to meet the average EU standards for water protection, air and waste disposal. This will create new business opportunities in Croatia, where Danish companies can contribute with sophisticated green technology and modern equipment and experience from the world markets.
