Ærø – Sustainable Energy Island

Ærø (Aeroe) is an island in southern Denmark with ambitious sustainable energy policies. The island has implemented several cutting edge energy solutions.

Ærø generates more renewable electricity than it uses, and gets its district heating from sun and other renewable sources. Ærø built and operates the revolutionary emission free E-ferry ‘Ellen’.

In 2021, Ærø was awarded the RESponsible Island Prize 2020 by the EU Commission.

Ærø EnergyLab manages energy-related projects for the Municipality of Ærø, and welcomes visitors from around the world to explore the island’s energy solutions.
