Solutions must be long-term before they have value for the energy engineer Jette Ellegaard Vejen. Her first challenge at Viegand Maagøe was to electrify the food sector.

A sustainable society requires long-term planning, and this matches perfectly with the new energy engineer and chief consultant at Viegand Maagøe, Jette Ellegaard Vejen. In collaboration with DI, Danish Agriculture & Food Council, DTU, Danish Energy, and The Danish Industry Foundation, Jette is going to lead a major project on electrification of the food sector. 

The food sector has a huge CO2 emission and electrification is a way to generate profitable green conversion. However, many companies are busy and consequently do not invest in new solutions as long as the old ones are still working. Today, we are demonstrating the solutions of the future in concrete companies. Hence, everyone can see the solutions work and will be easy to implement in the sector.

The potential is huge and it’s the first project of its kind, so I am very excited about the results, says Jette. 

Crazy ideas bring us forward 

Jette Ellegaard Vejen prefers to take a helicopter view where focus is on the big changes.
Previously, Jette has been responsible for collaborations on energy efficiency in Vietnam and Ukraine and Denmark’s representative in negotiations on EU rules on ecodesign and energy labeling.  

I like to see things in a context. It motivates me to work with many partners and keep in mind that what someone is working on in one place might provide tremendous value elsewhere. Also, there must be room for crazy ideas. They can bring us forward as long as we work in a structured way, says Jette.

Always sustainable

Energy and sustainability have always been important to Jette Ellegaard Vejen.  

This was what attracted me to Viegand Maagøe. Here, you find some really strong competencies in the field, says Jette. 

Jette lives on a farm near Roskilde together with her husband. They both focus on sustainability and organic gardening.
