Project description

The Frederikshavn municipality plans to use 100% renewable energy by 2030. The project “Energy City” strives for citizen participation and created several opportunities for the public to take part, e.g. through a forum that was  created for this purpose. The city’s masterplan has become an exemplary roadmap and has partly been adopted by the Danish National Agency for Energy Management.
