Profile: Samsø – Denmark

Samsø – Denmark


When you live on Samsø, your electricity doesn’t come from a traditional power station. Samsø has eleven land-based wind turbines that  its entire electricity needs. In a similar way the majority of the heat production comes from four district heating plants powered by woodchips, straw and solar panels.

Situated in the middle of Denmark, Samsø was chosen to be Denmark’s Renewable Energy Island in 1997 and within a ten-year span succeed in being 100 % self-sufficient with renewable energy.

Since then the islanders have taken up new challenges and are now busy implementing a new master plan showing how Samsø can be fossil free within the year 2030.
