We proudly present the three top economists participating in Battle of the Economists 2015 under the theme GO GREEN, NOW?

The first speaker is Ditlev Engel, who is Chairman of the Board at Big Future 2025, a think tank that seeks to advice Danish companies and decision-makers on how to obtain sustainable growth. His expertise in sustainable growth comes from his time as CEO for Hempel and later Vestas, as well as his position as Chairman of the Board in the Danish Green Investment Fund.

Next, we present Thomas Dalsgaard, Executive Vice President of DONG Energy Thermal Power. Through this position, Thomas Dalsgaard has a considerable insight into the challenges and opportunities of the Danish transition to sustainability. He is leading DONG Energy’s department of Thermal Power and has been involved intensively in the innovative New Bio Solutions business, which aims to convert waste to energy.

Finally, we welcome Michael Svarer, professor at the Department of Economics and Management at Aarhus University, Aarhus BSS. Michael Svarer has been intensively involved in policy advising in Denmark, and among other positions, he is a member of the Danish Economic Council and the Danish Environmental Economic Council.

All three experts will discuss and share their thoughts on the most urgent challenges that Denmark faces – is it the right time to go green, now?
