During “Folkemødet“ - The People Meeting at Bornholm, the venue where Danish politicians, interest organizations and citizen meet to debate current political issues, DTU President Anders Bjarklev visited the Hansen-Pedersen family in Allinge - one of the participants in the large EcoGridEU project taking place at the island.

The family is one of 2,000 electricity customers at Bornholm, which are part of the large-scale project demonstration the future intelligent energy system. The family participates in the project with their heat pump, which will react on price signals from a new innovative real-time market place developed by DTU Elektro within the project.

There was also time to discuss education - the oldest son in the family, Frederik, will start his studies as electrical engineer at DTU after the summer holiday and was welcomed to DTU by both the DTU President and by Professor and Center Leader Jacob Østergaard from DTU Elektro. This resulted in large smiles all around.

Excellent collaboration between DTU and Østkraft
