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.

Population increases, growing demand for food and climate change have created an immense challenge. How do we feed the world’s growing population and reduce C02 emissions at the same time? The answer lies in innovative solutions and new technologies. Three of them will be presented in this article.
A liquid-to-water heat pump utilizes and draws the energy from any giving liquid and then deliver is to a water born system, like radiators. The energy can come from a variety of sources including slurry, excess process water or trough hoses in the ground. It can be done based upon two needs: cooling or heating. […]
With inspiration from Denmark, a number of energy intensive Mexican companies have signed a voluntary agreement for energy efficiency. The agreements signed so far will reduce emissions by more than 55,000 tonnes CO2e per year, corresponding to the annual emissions of 12,000 Danish households.
Through seven years of research, the project CITIES has shown how digital solutions based on data-driven methods make energy systems talk with each other. It saves money and CO2. Here are five significant key findings from the research.
The Danish government will increase its energy saving efforts with new ambitious energy saving targets by 2030. The government will reduce its energy consumption by a further 42,480 MWh in buildings owned and used by state administration. In other buildings used by state institutions, energy consumption must be reduced by 10 per cent within the next 10 years.

Denmark and Ukraine have established a government-to-government cooperation which aims to ensure solutions for an independent and more sustainable energy sector in Ukraine. The Danish Energy Agency has supported the Ukrainian State Agency’s ambitions as regards energy efficiency and energy savings by designing a mechanism for industrial energy efficiency based on Danish experiences with Voluntary […]
In the spring of 2015 construction was started to expand the Milton District Hospital to keep pace with unprecedented population growth, increasing demand, and the need to diversify services. The goal was to create a space that would be inclusive and accessible, promote healing and wellbeing, while contributing to community and the environment.
Brewing a game-changer at Carlsberg Fredericia. Over the past 10 years, Carlsberg has been closely involved in developing and testing the HYDRACT valve, and since 2016 Carlsberg has implemented the HYDRACT valve at the company’s brewery in Fredericia, Denmark. The project first started out as an energy reducing project – powered by water hydraulics – […]
The Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade, MOIT, has launched an energy efficiency guide based on a Danish formula. The guide will help the country’s 63 provinces identify and harvest 5-7 per cent energy savings by 2025.
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.
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.
