The energy in Thy
The citizens in Thisted Kommune have always had a touch of “do it yourself” mentality, and when it comes to energy production this is obvious. That is why you, in Thy, will experience how the concept of “decentralized energy production” are being exemplified through all the small heating facilities, local wind mills, solar panels, solar cells and thermal pump, that the citizens are putting up. Most of it on sustainable and renewable sources. Inside the city of Thisted the heating supply has established itself as the point for sustainable energy supply with the first geo-thermal, a large CSP solar heating facility and something as unfamiliar, in Demark, as remote cooling, where the renewable energy erplaces the large ugly cooling facilities, that we know from a lot of city roofs.
Thisted Kommune has administratively been a part of supporting the energy in Thy by doing its outmost for the businesses and the citizens, by giving them the necessary space to make this energy, this now means that over 85% of the public heating and more than 100% of the electrical supply are comning from renewable energy. That to an area that houses industry and more thatn 46,000 inhabitants. You will probably not find any other place in Denmark with such a wide spread of renewable energy.
But the history about the energy in Thy doesn’t end here. Thisted Kommune is constantly working on becoming a test area for tomorrows green technologies. No where else, is this more visible that in the National Test Center for Large Wind Mills in Østerild, where among others Vestas and Siemens are testing large wind mills, where a single can produce enough energy for a larger danish city. The test center is open to the public, so you can experience the energy of tomorrow today.
In Hanstholm and by Nissum Bredning DanWEC (Danish Wave Energy Center) is facilitating a large test center, where Danish and international developers are testing and e developing their wave power facilities.
At the Nordisk Folkecenter for Sustainable Energy you can experience a test center for local wind mills. At the same time you can also get a fascinating and inspiring look into the history of the modern renewable energy and get a tour of the center by one of the compentent guides at the center.
And in Frøstrup local citizens are behind the construction of a demo-house for green technologies for home-use.

Havet ud for Hanstholm er det perfekte sted til test af store bølgekraftanlæg.
Over 85 procent af den offentlige varmeforsyning i Thisted Kommune kommer fra vedvarende energikilder. Blandt andet biomasse, geotermi, solvarme og affald.
På Nordisk Folkecenter for Vedvarende Energi har i snart 30 år spillet en afgørende rolle for udvikling af vedvarende energi i Danmark.
Biomasse i form af flis er en hovedkilderne til den grønne fjernvarme i Thisted Kommune.
Omstilling til vedvarende energi kræver en massiv indsats for energibesparelser.
