Lokal Energi

The purpose of this project is to contribute to the green transformation in local areas that fall outside of normal district heating and supply network areas. At the societal level, the project will contribute to developing knowledge and experience with appropriate solutions in small local communities. In many communities, there are businesses or smaller companies that generate excess heat, which could be used as part of a possible local heat supply. From a business standpoint, the project will contribute new opportunities for local craftsmen and businesses, as well as increased engagement from civil society.


Part of the Danish population lives in so-called “Area 4” communities, where public supply networks do not provide coverage. These areas need coordination and activation of greener opportunities for oil and the like.

Solution idea

The project will develop a green business plan for these local communities to uncover green opportunities, financing opportunities, collaboration models, etc.

Project deliverables

Development of green business plans and cooperation models for use in the development of Area 4 rural communities, from oil and gas heating to green heating, such as heat pumps or local heating.
