Aalborg Renewables: A successful kickoff event

Wednesday September 14th Aalborg Renewables had its kickoff as a community. Anders Eldrup was the first keynote speaker to visit the community, and provided the audience with important and entertaining insight to the renewables industry in Denmark.

The aim of Aalborg Renewables is to bring a community together within the renewables sector in Northern Denmark. That is what happened at the launch event for the community yesterday. “It is all about making the cake bigger, not fighting for the pieces” Anders Eldrup said as he was presenting his keynote speak.

This first event is the start of what Aalborg Renewables is really about, mainly connecting actors to accelerate innovation across the sector. With participants from the public-, and private sector and representatives from the educational system, the foundation for multisectoral collaborations has been laid.

During his speak, The vision – then and now: Denmark as a leading nation within wind energy, Anders Eldrup touched upon topics such as:

  • DONG Energys 85/15 strategy
  • the finansing model of the offshore wind venture
  • becoming worldleading in turbine operation and sustainable investment funding
  • the Danish renewables ecosystem
  • The new vision and the challenges to come
