Right before the summer holidays, a united Danish energy sector is establishing Energy Cluster Denmark. Denmark’s new energy cluster is established with broad support from energy technology companies and knowledge institutions and is built on the basis of the three cluster organisations Energy Innovation Cluster, House of Energy and CLEAN Energi.

The board of the new energy cluster has appointed Glenda Napier as the new CEO of Energy Cluster Denmark. The next step has been to place the new cluster’s offices close to the energy sector.

“We are establishing six offices around the whole country, one of which will be the largest in Esbjerg. It is important for the board that the ecosystem for energy technology has easy access to collaborating on innovation. We have chosen to locate the headquarters for our new cluster in Aalborg, but we will also have a strong base in Esbjerg, which is a hub for the green transition,” says Peder Østermark Andreasen, Board Chairman of Energy Cluster Denmark.

The office in Esbjerg is located in House of Offshore Innovation at the Port of Esbjerg, where 15 employees will work on-site daily and where a central part of the staff function is located. In addition to the office in Esbjerg, Energy Cluster Denmark will have offices in Aalborg, Aarhus, Sønderborg, Copenhagen and Fredericia.
