House of Energy can promise you:

  • A single point-of-entry and overview of the competences and resources within the field of energy, which are present in the Northern region of Denmark.
  • A business partner dedicated to helping actors in northern Denmark out in to the world, and bringing the world to northern Denmark.

Founding partners of House of Energy are BusinessAalborg, Hydrogen Valley, Aalborg University, and North Denmark EU Office.

You are always welcome to contact us. Cluster Manager Preben Birr-Pedersen is ready to tell you about House of Energy. pb@aalborg.dk / 0045 2080 8263

Methanol – an important part of the future energy system

Methanol is an area of great interest for House of Energy. Why? Because we believe, it is an important and necessary element of the future energy system. The breakthrough for methanol is just around the corner: the technology is there and political framework conditions are favorable.

Methanol is a flexible fuel that can be produced from a number of renewables such as biogas, hydrogen and wind energy. Methanol will play an important role in the future energy system as it can act as a replacement for gasoline and diesel and thereby reduce CO2 emissions from the transport sector.

House of Energy work with five focus areas


District heating has been a high priority in the Northern region of Denmark over a long period of time, which today explains why the Northern region of Denmark has the world’s most well-established district heating system and has used this position to build up unique knowledge, competences and products within this field. The region is a world leader within district heating pipes, pumps, biomass plants, solar heating systems as well as within software development and consultancy for the public district heating field.

In the future, wind power will play an essential role in both the local and global energy system. As with the rest of Denmark, the Northern region has been putting wind power on the energy agenda for a long period of time. In the Northern region of Denmark, you can find world-leading manufacturers, a strong, dynamic and growing network of subcontractors to the wind power industry, and high quality research within wind energy. If you want to hear more about wind power in House of Energy, please do not hesitate to contact:

The Danish Energy Agency has identified hydrogen and biogas as important elements in the transition of the Danish energy system into being independent of fossil fuels in 2050. Hydrogen is expected to play a crucial role, as electricity from wind turbines can be converted into hydrogen and be used in the transport sector and for industrial purposes. The Northern region of Denmark holds a special position within green gasses and in particular hydrogen technology. If you want to hear more about green gasses in House of Energy, please do not hesitate to contact:
