An integrated management approach for water security in all sectors
The exploitation of freshwater resources, population growth and the impacts of climate change calls for water management based on sound knowledge and sustainable practices. This White Paper covers the Danish approach to Integrated Water Resource Management and addresses complex water challenges.
District Energy holds a vast potential for energy efficiency in urban areas. This White Paper highlights the key elements for success in district heating and cooling. It covers aspects from regulation and planning, efficient production of thermal energy, to storage, distribution and end user solutions.
This white paper has the purpose of contributing to the common understanding of the concept of the circular economy and, through practical examples, illustrating how Danish companies are providing solutions that help progress the transition towards a circular economy.
Urban Innovation for Liveable Cities
A holistic approach to sustainable city solutions
How to Save and Recycle Water without Compromising Product Quality
The availability of water will be a critical issue in the future, and the cost of water will rise. This white paper gives food and beverage companies a valuable insight into the possibilities of water efficiency.
Unlocking the potential of wastewater
On a global scale, less than half of all wastewater is collected and less than one fifth is treated. This and the threat of water scarcity underline the need for more efficient and smarter wastewater treatment across the world. This white paper provides lessons learned from Danish stakeholders within wastewater treatment.
Greater Water Security with Groundwater
Climate change is affecting global rainfall patterns and water distribution. Since there is approximately 100 times more groundwater on Earth than fresh surface water, it makes sense to exploit groundwater as a source of water. The aim of this white paper is to share some of Denmark’s technologies, tools and methods for groundwater mapping and hydrogeological modelling.
Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems
As the climate changes and the number and frequency of rainfall events increases, so does the need for intelligent rainwater management solutions. This White Paper presents insight into lessons learned from Danish stakeholders within rainwater management and Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS).
Reducing Urban Water Loss
25-50% of all distributed water globally is lost or never invoiced due to illegal connections, inaccurate billing systems, inaccurate metering, leakages, deteriorating infrastructure and wrong water pressure management etc. - or in short Non-Revenue Water (NRW). This white paper examines how water utilities can improve efficiency and meet future demand for water by reducing Non-Revenue Water.
Sustainable Urban Transportation
It is estimated that 9 billion people will inhabit the planet by 2050 – 70% of these will live in cities. The increasing urbanisation will be a challenge to cities all over the world and the demand for new innovative solutions within urban mobility is growing. This white paper provides insight into the solutions that Denmark has to offer within urban sustainable transportation.
Financing the Green Transition
The aim of this white paper is to share some of Denmark’s – and Danish financial institutions’ – examples on how to finance smaller or larger projects within climate adaption, energy, energy efficiency, environment and water.
Buildings account for up to 40% of society’s energy demand and thereby play a key role in the green transition. This White Paper can be used as a tool for inspiration to spot the potential or implement building automation and energy-efficient measures in new and existing buildings globally.
Energy efficiency in a competitive industry
Energy is an important driver of industrial productivity growth. For a long time Europe has known that energy efficiency is the most cost-effective way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This White Paper covers insights into Denmark’s experience with energy efficiency across a wide range of industrial sectors through state-of-the-art case examples.
From Sustainable Biomass to Competitive Bioenergy
Today, approximately 70% of renewable energy consumption in Denmark is bioenergy-based, mostly in the form of straw, wood and renewable wastes. This White Paper gives an overview of Denmark’s solutions, cases and experiences in transforming sustainable biomass resources into competitive bioenergy solutions.
A New Maritime Era
Stricter international environmental regulations combined with shipping companies’ focus on energy and cost efficient operations are driving a green conversion in the maritime sector. This White Paper demonstrates opportunities and lessons learned from different stakeholders across the Danish maritime industry, supported by state-of-the-art case examples.
Wind Energy Moving Ahead
The global market for wind energy is gaining ground as wind technologies are getting more and more sophisticated and competitive. Get and overview of how Denmark utilises wind in the energy sector and read about lessons learned from Danish players and legislators within this sector.
A Common Ground for Clean Soil
Soil is literally the foundation on which we will build a sustainable future. Despite this, soil is contaminated, exploited, and degraded all over the world. Insides this White Paper is an overview of the Danish sector for soil and groundwater remediation and the companies which contribute to its development.
Rethinking aquaculture to boost resource and production efficiency
For more than four decades, the worldwide demand for fish has increased at almost twice the rate of the growth in global population. This White Paper presents best practice examples of resource efficient sea and land-based aquaculture solutions for farming high quality seafood.
Rethinking pools to boost safety and minimise use of water energy and chemicals
For over a century, chlorine has been the preferred disinfectant for making sure the water is free of unhealthy bacteria. This White Paper presents an overview of safe swimming pool solutions that ensure minimised use of both energy and chlorine and high water quality.
Ensuring great-tasting and safe tap water 24 hours a day
The global trends of urbanisation, population growth and increased welfare challenge cities all over the world. This white paper shares methods of how water utilities can improve water quality, increase resource efficiency and ensure uninterrupted service to customers.
Producing More with Less
Denmark is among the world leaders in sustainable intensive food production and innovative solutions in the bioeconomy. Get an introduction to bio economy potentials and technologies, resource-efficient solutions across various industries as well as an overview of how to utilise residual products across the value chain.
Rethinking urban water for new value in cities
Sustainable solutions are no longer a choice for most societies: they’re a must. Especially in our cities. Inside this White Paper you can find case examples of how to rethink urban development and gain greater value from investments in the city’s blue infrastructure.
