Our house is a gathering place for global and local development regarding energy savings and
conversion to renewable energy among other things.
Samso Energy Academy is located north of Ballen Harbor on Samso.
The Energy Academy has 8 employees who live on Samso all year long. The 8 employees have
professional skills in community development and sustainable solutions. All this is based on
Samso’s status as Fossil Free Island of 2030.
Ever since 1997, when the Island of Samsø won the Danish government’s competition to become Denmark’s Renewable Energy Island, its inhabitants took ownership of their situation and focused on working towards an outcome that for many was vague and unsubstantiated.
The goal of the project is to demonstrate and convey to the public the latest solutions within LED light technology, as well as the interaction between artificial and natural light. The demonstration of artificial light will take place by modifying sources of light, intensity, the composition of colors, and adjustments in relation to the functions and geometry of the rooms.
I forbindelse med Folketingets energiaftale i 2018 blev Energiakademiet betænkt med midler til grundfinansiering af det daglige arbejde. Aftalen gælder frem til 2024 og akademiet er dermed sikret den arbejdsro og stabilitet, som er nødvendig for at nå de mål vi sammen med Samsø kommune har sat for Samsø som fossilfri ø i 2030.
