State Secretary to the Minister for Climate and Environment, Swedenprovided closing remarks at Minesto’s keynote session
Minesto had the honor of welcoming Daniel Westlén, Secretary of State Romina Pourmokhtarithe Swedish Minister for Climate and Environment, during the session on “Case study: supporting Swedish ocean energy kites Faroe Islands be 100% renewable by 2030”.
“Indeed, the ocean represents a huge opportunity to become fossil-free. It was encouraging for me to learn about this innovative and intelligent technology that is truly expanding the potential of power generation from the sea. Given the vulnerability of small island developing nations where fossil fuels have been the dominant energy source for many years, the invention and development of this technology offers hope. This can also be part of an important development from a climate justice perspective. I see potential for ocean energy in general, and Minesto’s technology in particular, not only to power island nations, but wherever there are tidal currents. The technology should also be able to scale in larger markets and become an integral part of energy systems,“, says Daniel Westlén in his closing remarks.
