Testing & Demonstration

Our living lab, the Village from Green Research, demonstrates how various energy solutions can be combined to achieve the ultimate goal of 100% renewable energy.

The lab is equipped with test facilities to examine and further develop prototypes and commercial products. Folkecenter has over 30 years of experience in design and testing of renewable energy technology. Moreover, we provide certificates for small wind turbines and we have a second test station for small wind turbines on the way.

Our lab is open to the public and receives more than 6,000 visitors every year. You are also welcome to visit us or rent our facilities to make your green events outstanding!
