Norbis ParkA green living lab
The area around Nordjyllandsværket is being transformed into a massive test and demonstration center within green water and energy solutions of the future.
The area where the power plant is located, amounts to approx. 90 hectares and the city is preparing the area to house facilities for research, testing and development of new technologies.
One of the larger projects to be established at the site is a power-to-x plant, which is to produce green methanol made from captured CO2, green electricity and water.
The ambition is to create a sustainable, vibrant environment with a focus on synergy, partnerships and resource sharing and the testing of new forms of energy, such as solar and wind energy, surplus heat, geothermal energy, fuel cells and heat pumps.
