With its new office opening in Brussels on 1 July, the Danish Energy Association will be better placed to exert influence and acquire information on European energy policy.
“Brussels is becoming more and more important for energy policy and legislation. So the Danish Energy Association is moving in to make sure it can wield the maximum influence,” says Lars Aagaard, Deputy Director of the Association.
The Danish Energy Association has appointed Marie Bjerborg as lobbyist at the new EU office. Bjerborg comes from a position as consultant in Region Sealand's office in Brussels. She has this to say about her new job:
“Here at the Danish Energy Association our clear ambition is to have a finger in the EU's legislative preparations.
The advantage of being physically present in Brussels is that the Association can acquire information about new political initiatives at an early stage and thus be in a position to influence the process.
At the same time we as an organisation can learn more about the other EU countries and their political situation. We can use this in our discussion of national strategies,” Bjerborg concludes.
Marie Bjerborg will be working closely with EU Manager Camilla Rosenhagen, based at Rosenørns Allé in Copenhagen.
