Light house projects

Light house projects are larger investments that go further than the law prescribes in terms of environmental performance.

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. They thus provide an option to give funds to e.g. the establishment of facilities, and not only development, test and demonstration as is the norm. In addition, it is an opportunity to test promising technologies at full scale.

Thirteen light house projects have been launched under the Danish Eco-Innovation Program’s subsidy scheme.
