Chat up the energy barons
Energy is yet another important sector of the Danish economy. Denmark has considerable sources of oil and natural gas in the North Sea and ranks as number 32 in the world among net exporters of crude oil. However in modern times, Denmark has been relying less on energy produced from coal and natural gas and looking more at renewable energy options. The country has long been a leader in the generation of wind power which today contributes to around 20% of domestic power requirements. As of May 2011 Denmark derived 3.1 percent of its Gross Domestic Product from Clean energy technology and energy efficiency which in turn came up to around 6.5 billion Euros or $9.4 billion USD. Thus if you can get to meet entrepreneurs or professionals involved in the energy sector, you stand quite a good chance to jumpstart your social life to a roaring success.
