Omø Energy Island in Denmark

The island of Omø was included in Slagelse municipality’s climate plan and was chosen as “Energy Island” in 2011.

The aim of the project was to investigate how a municipality can support its citizens in the transition towards climate-friendly development and fewer CO2 emissions.

The local islanders of Omø were involved in different energy efficiency projects including the installation of several private sun cell facilities and heat-pumps.

The project ran until the end of 2013.
