Danish SmartEnCity Network is sharing good practices

07 Mar 2022

The leaders of the national-based SmartEnCity Network (Energibyerne) in Denmark have started discussions with the three leading Danish green islands with the idea of sharing the Energibyerne learnings focused on the barriers, challenges, and opportunities that islands have regarding the energy transition.

The Energibyerne is a network of seven Danish cities all a part of the SmartEnCity Network where Lighthouse City Sonderborg is a partner, too. Find out more about Energibyerne here.

On the meeting with the islands the Energibyerne cooperation was referenced where it was also indicated that islands need a different approach from regular "on land" municipalities.

The islands are Samsø, Ærø and Bornholm. Sharing best practices and energy experiences, citizen engagement and new project development within an island framework might also be of interest for the islands, which will continue their discussions in the Spring.
