The Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Programme (EUDP) aims at strengthening development and demonstration of energy technology, thus supporting the political goals of security of supply, a cleaner and healthier environment and cost efficiency while at the same time developing the business potential of the new technologies.
Since 2008 EUDP has funded energy technology projects with more than 2 billion Danish kroner. The funding has resulted in more than 440 projects including around 100 knowledge sharing projects under the auspices of the International Energy Agency.
The programme that belongs under the Danish Energy Agency focuses on helping promising projects across the cost-intensive gap between ‘proof of concept’ and ‘proof of business’.

EUDP awards 210 million DKK to support the development of new energy technologies. It has been distributed to 49 companies in 45 Danish municipalities and is expected to contribute to growth and job creation in all of the country’s five regions.
The aim of the project is to demonstrate a full scale pit heat storage (60,000 m3 ) in combination with a large solar collector field (35,000 m2) and heat pumps (3 MW). This energy plant will be able to supply the Danish city Dronninglund with 50% of its heat demand (20,000 MWh). The rest of […]
This project develops energy-system models with measuring and control technology that enables constant collection of production and consumer data. This facility will help balance the electricity system in connection with fluctuating wind turbine electricity generation. The system will be demonstrated and validated in full-scale operation in Bornholm. Project manager: PowerLabDK Consortium, c/o Centre for Electric […]
The project has focused on achieving a better utilization of the construction in a building in order to reduce the energy consumption for heating and cooling. The concrete constructions may have a load bearing primary purpose but it makes sense to also use the great thermal of the concrete for a better indoor climate less […]
The project aims at increasing farmyard manure decomposition from 50% to 75% through a composting-like treatment of the slowly degradeable part of manure to make biogas systems fed with pure manure competitive compared to systems fed with energy-intensive waste. First, the technology will be tested in pilot-scale and subsequently in full-scale. Project manager: Xergi A/S. […]
Demonstration plant on the island of Bornholm based on the Maxifuel concept The project designs and erects a demonstration plant with an annual output capacity of 5 million litres of bioethanol that can be followed at www.biogasol.com. The plant must under semiindustrial operating conditions document the positive results of the Maxifuel pilot plant, including energy […]
Biomass and biofuel-based polygeneration for off-grid and grid-connected operation The unique Stirling engine technology enables conversion of low-value biomass into carbon neutral and high-value electricity and heat. The project develops and demonstrates a concept for an off-grid, fuel-flexible container power plant, which is to document the potential of the technology as an alternative to diesel […]
To achieve the global ambitions for a green transition, large sums of finance are needed. This white paper features ideas and solutions for how to achieve the goals and it is meant to serve as an inspiration for everyone involved in the green economy.
