Test Island Bornholm

For more than ten years Bornholm has been an effective and international venue for development, test and demonstration of new and green solutions. In the ten years we've gained a lot of experience and knowledge, establishing a lot of network and cooperations.

The estimated value of all the projects is 100 mio. euro. As a modern multi-utility focusing on intelligent and green conversion of our society, we attract and inspire others to come a work with us.

Bornholm is a 2019-winner of the European Commissions Responsible Island Prize for sustainable energy development  - being the most ambitious island i Europe.
