The board

PlanEnergi is an independent institution whose purpose is to promote the use of resource-saving and environmental conservation systems. We want to promote this through professional activities in renewable energy, rational energy use and energy planning and information.

PlanEnergi is managed by a board consisting of five members and three employee representatives. The members are personally appointed, to ensure that they – as far as possible – represent the business areas that PlanEnergi prioritizes at any given time. That said, the Board is empowered to delegate management responsibility. The Board works along the lines of co-optation.

Members of PlanEnergi’s board:

  • Bjarne Rasmussen, (chairman)
  • Bjarke Rambøll
  • Hanne Jersild
  • Jesper Laage Kjeldsen
  • Marie Münster
  • Linn Laurberg Jensen, (employee representative)
  • Anders Michael Odgaard (employee representative)
  • Benedicte Julie Voltelen, (employee representative)

An Employees’ Committee consisting of all contractually based employees handles PlanEnergi’s day-to-day operations.

Employees council

PlanEnergi has a flat structure. All important decisions are discussed in the employee council, which sets decision making points for the board. All employees are part of the employees council. We meet in the employee council several times a year.

The coordination group

By requiring discussion in a small group called the coordination group. Here sits the department heads and the Board’s employee representatives. The coordination group is not a quorum.

Profession groups

We have organized ourselves into three professions; district heating, strategic energy planning and wind energy. The groups work with strategies for the professional development of each specific work area. In the profession group each employee’s professional development is undertaken. Each profession group has a leader who is responsible for convening weekly or monthly meetings in the profession group.

Departments

Our three departments are located in Skørping, Aarhus and Copenhagen. The departments are in charge of administrative matters, including labor and budgets within the department, so the workplace operates, and the workload is appropriate for the individual employee. Each department has a department responsible for convening monthly meetings.
