Biogas vans, insulation and ventilation are some of the improvements made by Frederikshavn Municipality the past year. 

"Energy is a prioritized growth track in Frederikshavn Municipality. Therefore, it is important that our climate initiatives show that we as a business take the lead in regard to energy savings and energy renovation and also set an example of how to rethink the transport sector," says Bo Niebuhr, Head of Department, Ejendomscenteret, Frederikshavn Municipality

The goal of Energy City Frederikshavn is to become 100% supplied by renewable energy in 2030. To reach that goal, the municipality has focused on the energy optimization of local properties and enhancing the fuel economy in transportation. Apart from this, Energy City Frederikshavn builds energy efficient buildings and advice the citizens of the municipality about energy renovation in private homes.
