in 2015, the One-Point-Entry service has assisted more than 250 international business delegations. Below are a few examples of cases.
New waste-to-energy plant in Antwerpen
In June 2015, the Board of ISVAG, the inter-municipal partnership for waste disposal in Antwerpen, visited Copenhagen to get inspiration on district heating and waste-to-energy technologies for the city’s planned new waste-to-energy plant.
Greater Copenhagen can display some of the most innovative district heating technologies in the world, and 98% of Copenhagen households are connected to the district heating grid.
The ISVAG Board met with:
- Technical waste-to-energy and climate change experts in Copenhagen Municipality.
- The Danish deposit and return system, Dansk Retursystem A/S.
- The Danish district heating export organisation, DBDH.
- The Danish companies involved in building the Copenhill, an inter-municipal waste-to-energy plant under construction, which will be among the world’s most energy efficient of its kind.
Eco-city cooperation between Greater Copenhagen and China
In June 2015, a delegation from the Beijing district, Fengtai, in China visited Frederikssund Municipality in Greater Copenhagen to sign an MoU to share knowledge on sustainable city development and smart city initiatives.
In Frederikssund Municipality, Denmark’s largest development project is under way with 20,000 new residents in the brand new sustainable city district, Vinge. So when the Fengtai delegation contacted the One-Point Entry with a request for inspiration for their own Changxindian Eco-City, the two city districts were connected.
The Fengtai delegation met with:
- The cleantech cluster organisation CLEAN.
- The Mayor of Frederiksund Municipality as well as government officials from the City of Copenhagen.
- The Amager Ressource Center.
- Danish cleantech companies such as Haldor Topsøe and Ramboll.
