Cleantech Fact Finding Mission in greater Copenhagen

28. April 2016

Six Austrian Cleantech companies visited  Copenhagen to get a thorough insight into the Danish market for clean solutions and identify possibilities for working together.

Denmark is a pioneer in renewable energy and environmental technologies. The country holds the world record in the supply of wind power and converts all of its coal power plants to biomass. By 2050, Denmark wants to be independent of fossil fuels. There are plenty of opportunities for cleantech expertise from Austria, as the Austrian companies could gather in course of the fact finding tour. 

The program included a visit to the world's most frequently photographed power plant "Avedøre" (DONG ), the municipal utilities Hofor , the engineering group Ramboll as well as DAKOFA (the Danish trade association for waste management and recycling.

The group also visited "Amager Bakke", which will soon be the largest and most modern waste incineration plant. With about 85 meters, it is not only the highest "mountain" of Copenhagen, but also one of the highest "buildings" and - not to forget - its first ski hill as well.

There are a number of success stories of Austrian companies in Denmark. A recent project in the Cleantech area is the launch of a 25 MW biomass-fired combined heat and power plant in Hillerød. The plant is one of the largest in northern Europe and is based on technology by the Austrian company Polytechnik .
