Reducing production costs through energy efficiency
For energy intensive industries such as steel, chemical, paper, pharmaceutical, cement and construction materials, energy costs constitute 15-40 percent of total production costs. These production costs can be reduced by implementing energy efficiency technologies, which provide a production with the same output with a lower energy input. For companies, this leads to increased competitiveness and reduced CO₂ emissions, while addressing security of supply. In Denmark, many companies have optimised their industrial processes, facilities and equipment, resulting in substantial reductions in their consumption of energy, water and packaging.
We invite you to explore solutions related to energy efficiency in industries in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest related news and discover real-life case examples of how energy efficiency in industries can help solve your energy challenges.

The Danish parliament agreed upon a revised climate action plan that will increase CO2 reductions by 1.4 million tonnes. Nine out of ten Danish political parties supported the action plan, which will include a green tax reform
Danish experiences can contribute to the green transition in Japan by utilising the country’s large wind resources. A strengthened cooperation between Denmark and Japan also includes large commercial opportunities for the Danish wind industry that can deliver the green solutions requested by the Japanese.
Customized solution and high efficiency Aalborg CSP A/S received the order for turnkey delivery of a customized 1.2 MW integrated electrical heat pump system to Saltum Fjernvarme in Denmark. The system will help increase the reduction of the facility’s natural gas dependency as well as stabilize the energy prices towards the customers. The 1.2MW electrical […]
Matching the customer’s energy needs Aalborg CSP received the order from the Danish utility and energy supply company SK Forsyning to deliver the 8 MWth solar heating plant. The solar heating plant is to be integrated with the district heating plant’s new biomass boiler and will supplement the delivery of energy to the plant’s existing […]
The Danish government set an ambitious goal of cutting CO2 emissions by 70 per cent by 2030. A new report outlines how this goal can be achieved with huge savings by investing in energy efficiency.
In the Danish region of Lolland, consumers and producers of electricity will soon be paid for turning the power up or down. The new experiment will solve the problem that local electricity grids have with the amount of renewable energy and can be a game changer for the rest of Europe, too.
The shift from a conventional wastewater treatment plant towards a resource recovery facility has become a priority focus in Denmark. Consequently, BIOFOS is now in the transfer process towards optimising resources from waste without compromising the environment.
Spica Technology offers a customised N50 Retrofit solution to extend the life span of ageing Nordex N50 800kW wind turbines. The N50 Retrofit solution is the Spica Retrofit Controller with Spica Control System integrated in a special designed nacelle panel fitted for the Nordex N50 nacelle.
Future Farming ApS aims to create a correct and more sustainable product for pig producers all over the world. The traditional way to ensure an acceptable immediate environment for piglets has been an infrared heat bulb. A method that’s not only wasteful in resources but energy as well. By exchanging the infrared heat bulb, for a heating element, gives better animal welfare, reduces the carbon footprint and natural resources.
Yesterday, the Danish Minister for Climate, Energy and Utilities met the international press at State of Green in Copenhagen to discuss the green transition, climate ambitions and Denmark’s international role in mitigating the effects of climate change.
Denmark has the experience and technology to help lift the big promises made at the several green summits during the autumn. The determination to live up to these promises is clearly marked by the visit to Denmark by the minister of the Environment, Climate and the Energy Sector from the German state Baden-Württemberg. The visit will showcase concrete Danish green approaches and solutions.
Heliac’s solution is based on the invention of an inexpensive lens that focuses the sunlight in the same way as a large magnifying glass. Based on the lens, Heliac builds modular panels each supplying 12 kW of heat. Lendemarke Fjernvarmeværk, owned by Europe’s largest privately owned energy company, E.ON., is the first customer of a […]
Pernexus Systems has developed the Works Portal, a cloud solution for companies in the utility industry. It is a collaborative platform for project management that assists in large construction projects involving cables or pipes in the ground, or any type of infrastructure development that requires excavation. Much more than just a software Manage tenders online […]
In this paper, you will meet the ten partners behind the Tours Network and find inspiration for site visits across energy efficiency, renewables, waste and resource management, clean air, water and climate adaptation.
If you are interested in visiting Denmark to explore these solutions and learn more about the concrete technologies, as well as connect with Danish stakeholders and share knowledge about green growth development, we encourage you to contact the Tours Network.
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.
This toolkit is designed for practitioners, governmental experts and other energy experts, and policymakers who are interested in developing and improving appliance energy efficiency policies. Acknowledging that governments operate under constrained resources, the toolkit provides examples of policies that have been implemented successfully with minimal costs, and illustrates different choices policymakers may consider. Finally, it […]
The Danish Energy Model has shown that it is possible to sustain economic growth and a high standard of living while reducing fossil fuel dependency and mitigating climate change. This has been achieved through persistent and active energy policy with ambitious renewable energy goals. The foundation of the low-carbon transition is threefold: energy efficiency, renewable energy […]
Learn from Danish success stories by downloading the Energy Policy Toolkit on Energy Efficiency in Industries Industrial energy efficiency is a clear-cut strategic topic, yet still resides in the periphery of governmental energy strategies. A shift of mind is required, away from words such as ‘costs’ and ‘quick fixes’ and towards a vocabulary of long-term […]
Effective management of resources at the local scale will become an important economic factor for manufacturing companies. Researchers at Aarhus University are working to develop a conceptual framework for eco-industrial realization of policy goals within water, climate and nature policy sectors. The field of Industrial Ecology advances designoriented, inter-industry strategies for resource conservation, minimizing waste […]
Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management, recently conducted an Energy Efficiency project in one of its global factories in Ringsted, Denmark.
