Amager Bakke (lit. ‘Amager Hill’), also known as Amager Slope or Copenhill, is a combined heat and power waste-to-energy plant (new resource handling centre) and recreational facility in Amager, Copenhagen, Denmark, located prominently within view of the city’s downtown.

The facility opened in 2017, and partially replaced the nearby old incineration plant in Amager, which is in the process of being converted from coal to biomass (expected to complete in 2020). The two plants play a major role in Copenhagen’s ambitions of meeting zero carbon requirements by 2025.
