The project has a budget of approximately 150 million DKK.
After the conclusion of the Dansk Mikrokraftvarme project in 2012, the intention is to launch a mass production of micro CHP units.
It is expected that all the houses in Vestenskov will be connected to the hydrogen system in 2012.
In addition to supplying sustainable energy, the expectation is that Hydrogen Community Lolland will have a spin-off effect on commercial development in general.
Since pure wind energy cannot be stored it means that when there is no wind households have to burn fossil fuels.The goal for phase three (2010-2012) is for Dansk Mikrovarme to supply about 35-40 households with hydrogen based on its experiences from the test homes. dating for utro Albertslund The homes will get a fuel cell module the size of a small central heating unit with an output of approximately 2 k W.By using wind energy to make hydrogen which can later be used in micro combined heat and power (micro CHP) installations, it will be possible to use almost 100% of sustainable energy sources for the production of heat and electricity. During phase one (2006-2007), Dansk Mikrovarme built a test/demonstration plant.An electrolysis plant was developed to make hydrogen and oxygen, as were fuel cells for the electrochemical production of electricity and heat from the hydrogen, as well as equipment to connect to the village's energy supply grid.

A similar project is run in Sønderborg, southern Jutland.By replacing their gas-fired central heating boiler with a micro CHP unit, homeowners can avoid carbon emissions equivalent to driving their car 7500 km - the same as the distance from Skagen (at the tip of Jutland) to Gibraltar and back.Separation requires the application of an electrical charge. When the hydrogen has been separated it can be used in a fuel cell in which the hydrogen is used in a chemical process that releases energy. The chemical process occurs when the hydrogen comes into contact with oxygen from the air, which releases steam as the exhaust from the hydrogen fuel cell.Hydrogen is distributed directly to the houses by underground pipes from a large electrolysis plant in a field behind the village's nursing home.
Both electricity and heat used in the home will be derived from sustainable energy sources and are as such entirely carbon-neutral.
The demonstration plant uses centralised production of hydrogen to make electricity and heat which is then used to hit buildings in the area.
This phase was officially inaugurated on 17 November 2006.
This combustion produces an electric charge which can be used for power and heat.
The advantage of this process is that it does not develop CO2 and the only waste product is pure water.
