Søren Hermansen - Samsø Energy Story

  • 6:00 PM
  • Innovation Center Denmark, 200 Page Mill Rd, Ste 10, Palo Alto

Does the vision of a fossil free society sound unrealistic? Not if you ask the people involved with the Samso Energy Academy, for whom it is conceivably close.

 Currently, the Danish island of Samsø has achieved 100% renewable energy status by utilizing energy sources of wind, solar, geothermal, and plant-based energy. The aim is to realize the vision of fossil free society for Samsø in 2030 and for Denmark in 2050.

Join us on Thursday, October 12th for an inspirational presentation by Søren Hermansen, who as the CEO of Samso Energy Academy is at the epicenter of this unprecedented project of creating a 100% sustainable and resource efficient society.

Based on the unique knowledge that Søren Hermansen has obtained through his 20 year career with Samso Energy Academy and Samso Energy and Environment Organisation, he will share his experiences with climate change, how this affects local communities worldwide, and how decentralization can be the key in solving the environmental challenges that we are facing.
