In 2008 in the village of Vestenskov in Denmark the first-ever hydrogen village saw the light of day

In 2008, a dynamic development project called The Danish Micro Combined Heat and Power Project was established.

The ambition with the project was:

  • Positioning the region as a European role model for full scale implementation of hydrogen technology.
  • Reducing the emission of CO2 from private households
  • Creating an increase of the energy supply efficiency in Denmark and abroad
  • Helping the integration of renewables and balancing the power grid
  • Creating growth in the Danish energy industry
  • By the end of the project in 2014, to have micro combined heat and power units ready for consumers in Denmark and abroad

The project incorporated 9 Danish energy companies, each providing different competences necessary to develop, test and demonstrate the use of micro CHPs in private households.
