By State of Green, 01 May 2018

To give you an insight into the newest projects and solutions from companies and organisations in the Danish green sector; State of Green gives you an overview of 5 highlighted news from our profiles in April.

With our highlighted news stories from this month, we bring you an update on some of the newest achievements and upcoming projects from companies and organisations across a variety of green sectors.

From Invest in Denmark, it has been announced that significant progress has been made to connect the west coast of Denmark to the US, the UK and Ireland and to the Netherlands through subsea fibre cables. Denmark is thus one step closer to becoming a powerful digital hub in Northern Europe.

From the urban mobility sector, the Cycling Embassy of Denmark could report that more than 200,000 parked bicycles have been counted as a part of a citywide mapping to plan future developments of bicycle parking facilities. The project is one of several initiatives in the Priority Plan for Bicycle Parking 2018-2025, which aims to optimise the overall bicycle infrastructure in the City of Copenhagen.

In order to eliminate the risk of local imbalances in respective feeder lines caused by companies’ and private households’ PV installations, VisBlue has announced its participation in an exciting new collaborative project alongside Eniig and Aarhus University.

And in efforts to exchange knowledge and experiences across geographies and forge new partnerships, the International Federation for Housing and Planning (IFHP) has published a news story on the upcoming Urban Open Innovation lab in Hamilton, Ontario in September. The event is aimed at the development of collaborative innovative solutions to solve the sustainability challenges associated with the transition from an industrial to a post-industrial age.

Finally, Ramboll can now boast of having won yet another award: a German Renewables Award for its offshore wind farm project Arkona in the German Baltic Sea, which implemented a new method to protect the steel foundations of offshore wind turbines from corrosion.
