In 2009, Region Skåne – one of the ten AREA 21 partners – initiated the regional strategy “A Fossil Free Skåne 2020”.

One important step was a letter of intent, signed by Region Skåne and the energy company Öresundskraft in 2014. The letter aims at developing fossil fuel free energy solutions and promoting cleaner energy. In 2017, they strengthened the cooperation as the two joined the project AREA21 where they jointly will develop an Energy Smart Hospital Area in Helsingborg. In their newly released film, both organisations share their journey from a traditional supplier-customer relationship to a partnership with mutual goals.
