The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) wants to address the higher frequency of heavy rainfalls through integration of traditional underground drainage infrastructure with above-ground, nature-based solutions into ongoing urban infrastructure planning.
As part of an international consortium, Ramboll is involved in the ROMEO research and development project. The project intends to advance the energy transition in Europe and reduce the costs of offshore wind energy
City of Cambridge releases results of Ramboll’s Low Carbon Energy Supply Strategy study. Cambridge is among the first U.S. cities to move to tactical implementation of carbon neutrality as part of its Net Zero Action Plan.
The offshore wind farm project Arkona in the German Baltic Sea has received the German Renewables Award presented by the Clusteragentur Erneuerbare Energien, based in Hamburg. The project got the Innovation Product of the Year award for a newly developed method to protect the steel foundations of offshore wind turbines from corrosion.
A decision by the Danish Tax Appeals Agency has opened up for recovery of surplus heat which was previously wasted, both in Denmark and abroad. Ramboll is advising Denmark’s third largest district heating company, Fjernvarme Fyn, to recover surplus heat on a greater scale than ever before in the world.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
