Renewable Energy in Denmark

Dates: 1–31 July 2023
Application Deadline: 15 February 2023

Join us for an opportunity to learn about renewable energy while in Denmark.  This study abroad includes a four-week course taught on the Technical University of Denmark campus located in Copenhagen, Denmark.

This experiential learning opportunity includes a trip to the Middelgrund offshore wind farm where we will climb into the wind turbine. We will also do experiments on wind turbines at a large-scale testing facility, tour the metro system in Copenhagen, and tour a waste-to-energy facility. Since Denmark is a leading country in wind energy production with a goal to produce 80% of their electricity from wind in 2024, you will gain experience that can be applied to renewable energy development in the USA. We will study electrical grid stability with intermittent wind energy and study cybersecurity issues associated with the power grid.

We will also visit Frederiksborg Castle, Kronborg Castle, and various Viking sites. Take advantage of this opportunity to experience the modern area of renewable energy development while also experiencing living in Denmark, which is rated as one of the happiest countries. You can experience firsthand how sustainable living practices have been adopted.
