FORESIGHT 02 turns waste into wealth

The second issue of FORESIGHT Climate & Energy Business Denmark is released!

Picking up once more on the theme of transitioning to a green economy, this issue explores the efficient use of resources, from highly advanced recycling, to district cooling of buildings using seawater, to the way companies can use one another’s waste products in a process known as “industrial symbiosis.” Among other articles, we also take a look at a major wind technology advance being heralded as a big leap forward, the potential benefits of using big data in the electricity sector, and what the historic costs of energy generation can tell us about the right investment choices for tomorrow.

Introducing FORESIGHT Climate & Energy Business Denmark

Today sees the launch of a new magazine of record for international energy professionals who want to know more about the stream of innovations for decarbonisation of energy supply that flow from Denmark, a global hub of climate and energy expertise.

In the best traditions of independent, investigative journalism, FORESIGHT Climate & Energy Business Denmark bridges the knowledge gap between the challenges of climate change faced by governments and companies everywhere and the solutions available from Denmark.

In the launch issue of FORESIGHT we tell the story of Denmark’s transition to all-renewable energy for heat and power; how smart thinking and new technology is making cities nicer, cleaner and more adaptable to rapid growth and weather extremes; and why financial innovation has brought a new level of investor confidence to the climate and energy space. Plus much more.

At FORESIGHT we are passionate about inspiring the world with stories of clean energy solutions for profitable business and sustainable growth. When solutions to the challenges of climate change are not properly understood, appear economically out of reach, or lie in obscurity, progress slows. Public policy lacks clarity. Market visibility is reduced. Business suffers. A more knowledgeable world is an enlightened world. Our aim is to reach as large a global audience as possible with stories that shed light on the way ahead.

VIDEO – FORESIGHT – Climate & Energy Business Denmark

New Danish climate and energy magazine set to capture a global audience.

Industrialised countries the world over are faced with the challenge of transitioning to a decarbonised economy without sacrificing growth. Denmark leads the world in achieving this transition, which the government aims to complete for electricity and heating by 2035 and for transport by 2050. The country is a living laboratory for the delivery of reliable and affordable green energy.

Foresight Climate & Energy Business, a new magazine and website, has set itself the task of telling the world how Denmark will achieve its aims. It will gather the threads of Denmark’s learning in climate and energy solutions and tie them together in a mix of lively but highly authoritative reporting, presented in a winningly attractive and high class format reflective of the best traditions of Danish design.

No longer do Denmark’s climate and energy achievements have to be a little understood mystery in the outside world, or regarded with deep scepticism by disbelievers fed on misinformation. Foresight is the new magazine of record for the climate and energy sector. Not only will it inform the world of the very latest Danish innovations, whether they be products and processes, systems and solutions, or a brilliant new utilisation of IT in energy efficiency, Foresight will be a platform for setting the record straight, for correcting misrepresentation of the Danish approach, for answering misleading claims and for countering misreporting.

First Purple proudly presents the new climate change and energy business magazine, Foresight.

You’ll likely agree with us that Denmark is a bit of a pioneer when it comes to climate and energy.

Hence Foresight magazine.

Countries, cities, governments and companies face major climate and energy challenges. Foresight will bring Danish climate and energy solutions to their doors around the world.

Foresight will be published quarterly with the first release in early July 2016. The launch issue will be distributed in September 2016 @ Climate Week NYC and WindEnergy Hamburg. Each quarterly publication will focus on a specific theme and how Denmark has developed solutions to particular climate and energy challenges. The international reader will be presented with knowledge in a format that inspires action.
