ProjectZero is the vision for creating a ZEROcarbon future for the city Sonderborg in southern Denmark by 2029 based on sustainable growth and with many new green jobs as a result.
The ProjectZero concept is based on energy efficiency combined with renewable energy from the County´s own green sources – all documented in the ProjectZero masterplan.
The aim is to develop a world class showcase for energy savings, best practice mindset, participation, technology and business.
All County stakeholders are involved in the implementation, taking responsibility and actions.
Our activities include:
New collaboration between the retail company Dansk Supermarked and the district heating company Sønderborg Fjernvarme secures efficient utilisation of surplus heat from supermarkets’ refrigeration equipment. The heat export corresponds to heat consumption from 50 households and helps to lower CO2-emissions.
The organization has recently completed its evaluation of Sonderborg´s new Climate Roadmap2020 and the Plan was approved, advancing the project to “participant” status in the Climate Positive program, where it will serve as model among global C40 cities for its climate efforts.
