Majbrit Høyer, owner of WorldPower Consulting, has been a member of the Board of Directors of Energy Cluster Denmark for a year and a half.

“I am committed to board work at Energy Cluster Denmark because the cluster creates new solutions across the energy sector to solve our common climate challenges. That work is super relevant and important. The energy cluster has been set up as an innovation platform for the green transition. The cluster must ensure that we have some of the cross-cutting dialogues and cooperation on innovation that connect sectors and make it possible to achieve our common climate reduction targets by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2050. It is meaningful and there is concrete impact of what we are doing. It appeals to me.”

“It is a clear strength of the clusters that small and large are brought together on neutral ground and work together to develop and implement new technologies. I am on the board as a representative of SMEs and I know some of the benefits that a small company can have in working with large companies and universities to gain flight altitude in a global industry. Here, the cluster can be a powerful platform for the small business and help create important contacts between small and large players across the energy sector. Often small businesses are very innovative, but lack the volume to scale the solution to make a difference – the big ones can contribute with that and at the same time benefit from it. When collaboration succeeds between large and small companies and universities, clustering really makes sense.”

“The board work is inspiring and educational. It is access to a competent network, which is of great value to be able to draw on and contribute to – both in the board work and in the informal talk and meetings. We have a wide board from all over the energy sector. It is important for all of us that we have relevant knowledge outside our own field of competence right at our fingertips. Both ECD-membership and board cooperation contribute to this for me.”
