Denmark’s green laboratory
In Thisted Municipality we consider our region a laboratory or test site, where renewable energy solutions are tested in new ways and in new constellations and then realised.
Development and production of renewable energy has been at the top of the agenda in Thisted Municipality for more than three decades. This has lead to Thisted being Denmark’s leading climate municipality. Thisted Municipality is more than self-sufficient in terms of power, and 85% of the district heating is based on renewable energy.
Thisted Municipality is very open towards new technologies that can work together in new constellations, we like to collaborate with various players, and involve research institutions. This creates a good basis for business in the municipality and attracts new partners.
The open approach has virtually transformed the municipality into a living laboratory. Among other things, Thisted has test centres for wind and wave energy, and development in the fields of biogas and solar energy is also performed.
In order to realize all these projects, Thisted municipality has worked with citizens, educational institutions, and businesses for decades. Hence, we have created many unique solutions with great future prospects. This work will persist and innovative solutions will also continue to be implemented in the municipality.
