Twelve countries will sign a declaration on solar and wind energy to boost cooperation between nations and encourage investors, Danish Energy Minister Martin Lidegaard said.
The agreement will be signed later this morning, he told a news conference in London. The declaration will include new efforts to map wind and solar resources on a global level to encourage private investment in the renewables sector, the minister said.
With this kind of cooperation, “We can encourage the industry and ensure that investors may come in in the right places,” he said. Germany, the U.K. and the U.S. are on board with the plan, he said at the Clean Energy Ministerial conference, where ministers are gathering to discuss progress made by clean energy initiatives and enhancing collaboration.
