CLEAN

Member since September 2016

Why is CLEAN part of CITIES?

CLEAN’s role in the project is to help identify and source relevant issues related to energy systems and smart cities early in the process, but also to ensure successful knowledge dissemination of project results by evaluating, documenting and communication on the project and its results to our members, other companies, and public actors in Denmark and abroad. In CLEAN, we inform and involve different actors from the private sector, public sector and knowledge sector. That would be on one hand to communicate and on the other hand to ensure exploitation by relevant actors.

What role does CLEAN have in the project?

CITIES is one of the biggest research projects in Europe concerning integrated energy systems and how to implement energy systems that are reliable on renewables. This transition is at the core of CLEAN’s vision. And as a national and international cleantech cluster, it is our obligation towards our members to ensure that all research and knowledge on new solutions is successfully communicated and exploit to relevant actors, especially within the energy sector.

What do CLEAN expect to gain from being part of the project?

As a member-based nonprofit organization, we want to actively use and disseminate the results of CITIES and make sure that our member companies and public actors can exploit the developed technologies and solutions, and thereby create jobs and growth.
