For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted—the father of electromagnetism—who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.
Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increase and develop our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s scientific advice.
A new project led by DTU has been granted 19 million DKK by the Danish Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program. The project will demonstrate the largest grid-connected battery energy storage in Denmark. Batteries could be a key factor to retiring fossil-fueled power plants.
A grant of DKK 150 million from VILLUM FONDEN will enable a group of the world’s leading researchers to seek new energy, fuel and chemical alternatives to replace oil and coal. The key lies in the optimisation of process catalysts, which will be the focal point of the centre’s research efforts. Ulla Tørnæs, Minister for Higher Education and Science, officially inaugurated the centre today.
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.
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.
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.
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).
In the capital region of Denmark, they listen carefully to their water distribution networks. The country’s two largest water suppliers, HOFOR (Greater Copenhagen Utility) and Novafos, have transformed parts of their water distribution networks around Copenhagen into full-scale demonstration areas with state-of-the-art technology
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.
