Light house projects

Under the Danish Eco-Innovation Program's subsidy scheme (in Danish: MUDP - Miljøteknologisk Udviklings- og Demonstrationsprogram) four light house projects have been launched.

The light house projects are larger investments that go further than the law prescribes in terms of environmental performance. It thus provides an option to give funds to e.g. the establishment of facilities, and not only testing, developing and demonstration as is the norm.

Light house projects should be seen as a help to pioneers working within in the environmental field. The aid remedies some of the economic uncertainties that are otherwise associated with the establishment of new projects. In addition, it is an opportunity to test promising technologies at full scale.
