Copenhagen and Denmark as a whole are on the cutting edge of sustainable energy solutions. In this awesome video, skier Jesper Tjäder explores the dry slope recently installed atop one of Denmark’s waste management plants. These plants are designed to be visually appealing, recreationally inclined, and efficient recycling/ waste management facilities. They are designed to:

  • Treat around 400,000 tonnes of waste annually produced by 500,000 – 700,000 inhabitants and at least 46,000 companies.
  • Supply a minimum of 50,000 households with electricity and 120,000 households with district heating.
  • Have steam data at 440 degrees and 70 bars which doubles the electrical efficiency compared to the former plant. (source: B&W Volund)

And – you can ski on top of it year round! Who’s moving to Denmark?
