HOUSE OF ENERGY

Your one-stop-shop to a collaboration
within the field of energy


About House of Energy

House of Energy is a cluster for sustainable energy technologies and production. We connect businesses with knowledge institutions and are a strong platform that gives you one access to energy skills and resources. 400 researchers from Aalborg University and 400 companies from all over Denmark are the core of House of Energy.

In House of Energy, we work to strengthen the growth in our members’ companies. Our goal is to create new products and solutions, more companies and jobs, as well as increase turnover and export.

House of Energy can promise you:

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

You are always welcome to contact us. Cluster Manager Preben Birr-Pedersen is ready to tell you about House of Energy. pb@aalborg.dk / +45 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


The public heating system in Denmark has the potential to contribute significantly to the ambitious climate goals. At House of Energy, we focus on the environmental benefits of a better utilization of the excess heat from industry and production companies and the application of renewable energy sources. A well-designed district heating system is able to store and distribute renewable energy when it is available. Fossil energy sources are simultaneously being phased out while renewable energy is introduced. Our member companies are word leading in the areas of district heating pipes, pumps, biomass, plants, solar heating systems, software development and consultancy service within the area of district heating, additionally the members include 60 utility companies.

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.

Hydrogen and biogas may play an important role in the future energy system as a substitute for fossil fuels. Hydrogen is expected to play a crucial role, as electricity from wind turbines can be converted into hydrogen through electrolysis and be used in the transport sector and for industrial purposes. Biogas can together with natural gas phase out fossil fuels in the gradual transition towards using more sustainable energy. In combination biogas and hydrogen can be fuel of the future in the form of synthetic fuels for transport, heating, industry and in the gradual transition towards 100 % renewable energy to ensure a stable power supply. House of Energy is a pivotal center in the development of the technologies that will ensure an optimal production and utilization of green gasses.
