After months of meeting only virtually, the DeCarb project is organizing an interregional event in Denmark to gather partners and stakeholders for advancing in project developments. 

The two-day event will focus on "Labour re-skilling needs in economies affected by decarbonisation", and includes study visits that will boost the exchange of experience and learning. 

On the 8th of September,  partners and stakeholders will participate in the Re-skilling workshop that will have 3 parts. At the end of the afternoon, partners will deal with internal aspects of the project at the Steering Committee. 

On the 9th of September, partners and stakeholders will visit different facilities to see how the energy transition has enhanced the economic development of the municipality: 

  • First, they will visit Nordjyllandsværket (an existing coal-fired power plant) where they will see a presentation on conversion from coal to renewables.
  • After this, the participants will visit Nordkraft (the old coal-fired power plant in the city centre), where the representatives of the entity will introduce the transition from the coal plant to a culture/community/activity centre.
  • On the way back, the transport includes a stop at Aalborg Portland’s chalk pit lake, which provides district cooling for Aalborg’s new hospital.
  • Finally, participants will visit the Port of Aalborg, home to the manufacturing of the world’s largest wind turbine blades, the manufacturing of the world’s largest offshore wind turbine foundations as well as the world’s largest wind turbine test facility.
