Partnerships at the partnership conference

on .

At the access2innovation event SAVE THE WORLD. MAKE MONEY. REPEAT. earlier this week, the first steps to new partnerships were taken. And a couple of concrete partnerships were made official.

As the more than 200 participants gathered at the conference venue in central Aalborg, many of them had already heard the story in the morning news: Eniig (an energy company that is the result of a merger between EnergiNord, EnergiMidt and Himmerlands Forsyningsselskab) is collaborating with WWF to establish 35 mini grids I rural Uganda; picking up the thread from WWF’s previous Energy Hub-project with access2innovation and Remergy/Systemteknik.

At the conference, Farm Mountain Coffee and Danish Red Cross also announced that they are going to join forces in terms of local training and awareness building with the farmers that work with Farm Mountain Coffee.
