Facilities



Entrance

The main entrance of Folkecenter is a perfect example on how recycled materials can be used as building elements: wind turbine blades are, in this building, used both for aesthetic and structural reasons. When passing the gate, visitors will be able to see that, instead of regular beams for sustaining the roof, old turbine blades are used.



Strawbale-house

Can you imagine an entire house build of straw? It is not only possible, but it also can bring considerable living advantages: the house of Folkecenter is, indeed, inhabited all over the year. The building is a stand-alone system, which takes its electricity from a 2,2 kW wind turbine located in its garden. The electricity is then stored in 8 large batteries, allowing the house to be self-sufficient for some days even if there is a lack of wind.



Skibstedfjord_building

The SkibstedFjord building is an example of innovative underground architecture. The building has an octagonal shape and is an example of low energy underground architecture. With its 670 m2 and its 140 places, it is the ideal location for conferences on renewable energy topics and enjoys a very pleasant indoor climate in every season.



Waste-water-treatment

Cleaning water is even more important that producing green electricity, which is why Folkecenter has developed some solutions for treating waste water. The installations are designed to treat "gray waters", meaning waste waters coming from sinks and showers, but not from the toilets.

Folkecenter has three treatment plants, for a total capacity of 140 people (20 + 20 + 100).



Plus-House

The Plus Energy House is a house that produces more energy than it consumes. With a glass facade facing South, the building captures the heat radiations coming from the sun, which are then "stored" in the building through innovative insulation solutions.

The building, originally designed and used as a greenhouse, is now seat of the largest wave energy museum in Denmark.



Biodome

The Biodome is a unique greenhouse: shaped as a 5/8 th of a sphere, it contains three floors. The diameter at the base is 14.4 m. and the widest diameter is 15. 8m on the first floor. The frame is made of aluminium and is covered with triple wall polycarbonate glazing which, together with the good insulation, allows little heat loss.

Due to its shape, the biodome takes full advantage of all positions of the sun, maximizing solar gain. In addition to that, two large ponds full of fishes and plants provide a perfect example on how plant growing can be done without the use of industrial fertilizers: all the nutrients are, in fact, produced and consumed within the system, making the process very sustainable.
