The Danish Energy Association is a commercial and professional organisation for Danish energy companies. It is managed and financed by its member companies, mainly the electricity companies, and works to secure for them the freest and most favourable conditions for competition and development in order to ensure development, growth and well-being in Denmark.
Core value areas
Energy and climate policy, low carbon, capture and storage of CO2, renewable energy and energy efficiency
More and more ferries in Denmark are being rebuilt for battery operations, enabling them to be either partly or entirely powered by electricity. Both the Danish energy sector and the shipping industry welcome the development, with the Danish Energy Association and Danish Shipping strengthening their focus on electrification in order to further reduce the environmental impact of Danish ferries.
Electricity is the way to an energy efficient and green Europe. That is the message behind a new European alliance of business organisations, NGO’s and companies that will work together to promote electrification both politically and in practice.
The energy industry can help Denmark reach the climate goals within transportation, agriculture, heating and in the industry. By choosing the right solutions, the climate goals can be reached without inflicting high economic expenses on the society and still reach the 50 % renewable energy target set for 2030. At the same time, the agricultural industry can be protected from climate actions that can negatively affect the competitiveness of the industry.
In collaboration with the electricity company SEV and the Danish Energy Association, the Faroese public authorities have formulated a number of scenarios for an energy system without the use of fossil fuel. Wind, water, sun, tide, pump systems, and batteries will be the central elements of the electrification.
Island energy: Bornholm will be CO2-neutral in 2025 – without additional onshore wind. Bornholms’ Energy & Supply is analysing alternatives on its own simulation tool and the first calculations show that there is room for more solar cells in the grid than expected.
With the COBRA-cable connection to the Netherlands, Denmark will have more leeway to trade electricity with the rest of Europe as Denmark is currently challenged by German bottlenecks, said the Danish Minister of Energy, Utilities and Climate, Lars Chr. Lilleholt.
It is logical and good, that the Danish government now takes the initiative for a 3-year export strategy within energy technology. But the strategy must not entail, that we forget research and development. At the same time, we must secure a strong framework for the utilities to contribute to future successes, believes Danish Energy Association.
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.
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.
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.
This white paper takes you through all the elements of the success story of wind energy in Denmark. From the starting point and what we now consider small-scale wind turbines to the projects and technologies that push the bar and the ambitions for wind energy as a source of renewable energy. We hope you will be inspired.
