DTU Energy took part in the International Jamboree Denmark 2017, the largest jamboree in Denmark, where 36.000 Danish and international scouts and guides met this week in the scenic surroundings of Sønderborg in Southern Jutland.

Scouts from Roskilde had built a wooden Energy-tower, a copy of the Kara combustion plant near Roskilde, and DTU Energy collaborated with the KFUM scouts from the Bolund group to present the research of DTU into many forms of energy technologies, from windmills over electrolysis to research into batteries.

The Mayor of Roskilde Joy Mogensen was among the many interested and curious visitors who passed by and talked about energy. She was very excited about the strong Roskilde collaboration with DTU.

Scouts from 33 different nations participated in the International Jamboree, and several French, British, South American, Norwegian and Swedish scouts were enthusiastic about the combination of the energy tower and talks on energy technologies, taking the Energy Quiz of DTU Energy and having discussions on energy technologies. Among the many topics was the French dependence on nuclear power, the new British decision to phase out diesel and petrol cars from 2040, and what kind of replacement technologies that exist or is in the pipeline to take over after fossile fuels.
