This project will develop willow clamps, consisting of chipped and mixed organic material. These are to be placed in a specific “compost pile”, which, together with water, bacteria and oxygen, will compost. This process produces high temperatures and heat/energy, which can be collected for utilisation in a manner similar to heat pumps.


There is much energy in tides, and they are a more secure energy source, given that they are not dependent on wind and weather in the way that wind and solar energy are.

Solution idea

This project will develop a submerged water turbine that will be able to utilise tidal currents to produce electricity.

Project deliverables

Development, testing and production of a prototype in scaled-down format.

Problem owners


This project is financed by Energy Cluster Denmark’s Energy Technology Innovation (ETI) support programme. It offers three years of support to allow small- and medium-sized businesses to collaboratively develop innovative electronic products focused on energy optimisation. The ETI project is supported by the European Regional Development Fund.
