The ever-lasting energy source – power from the sun
The principle behind PV is simple. Sunlight is converted into electricity by photovoltaic solar cells; semiconductor devices, which contain no liquids, corrosive chemicals or moving parts. A solar cell solution has numerous environmental benefits: it does not pollute, it is silent and it requires little maintenance. PV is a mature technology and the global prices have dropped approx. 70 percent since 2010. PV is also a technology that can be implemented regardless of context and in Denmark, thousands of private households, industries and office buildings have integrated photovoltaics. In 2017, PV contributed with approx. 3 percent of the Danish electricity consumption.
We invite you to explore photovoltaic related solutions in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest photovoltaic news and discover real-life case examples of how photovoltaics can help solve your energy issues.
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.
Nerve Switch® enables each individual battery cell to be controlled both directly and independently. This allows for optimizing several electrical energy systems by removing the need of expensive power electronic components, extending battery lifecycle and creates a foundation on which it is possible to design hybrid battery systems.
The International Energy Agency’s (IEA) market analysis and forecast on renewable energy for 2019 was released today. After growth in capacity stalled in 2018, additions are set to rise this year, primarily due to solar PV and to a lesser extent, onshore wind.
Two partnerships with Danish participation are supported by P4G – Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030 – to find solutions to curb the consequences of climate change in Africa and Asia. The solutions are based on new technology and local cooperation in developing countries.
Electric power has tremendous potential, given the possibility to use it as a fuel source in transport, heating and industry. It can play a central role in reducing the planet’s CO2 emissions, thereby achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement. These are the key messages of the Renewable Energy Outlook 2019, that was released in Copenhagen this week.
Press release: A wind and solar photovoltaic hybrid demonstrator has recently been installed at an EDPR wind farm in Cádiz, Spain. The initiative is part of EDPR’s R&D strategy and Vestas’ increasing efforts to offer sustainable energy solutions that meet customers’ increasing need to balance energy supply with grid demand.
While renewable electricity has attracted significant political attention in countries around the world, renewable heat “remains the sleeping giant of energy policy”, writes the International Energy Agency (IEA). Renewable heat represents a massive opportunity for emissions reductions, as heat consumption accounts for over 50% of total final consumption.
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.
In order to develop new battery materials, new solar panels, new fuel cells and many other useful products, electrochemists need to test their system with different variations. Countless variations. Testing the variations is time consuming and yet not very productive. To liberate time and creativity of researchers and students, a research group has developed tools […]
CIS Nordhavn is a new school building for the Copenhagen International School, which will be located on a prominent site in Copenhagen’s new Nordhavn district. The 25,000 m2 school building will be Copenhagen’s largest school, and it can accommodate 1,200 students and 280 employees.
Køge North Station will be a characteristic landmark for green mobility in the capital region of Copenhagen. A simple design, minimal use of resources and materials, and minimal maintenance costs have been key points in the development of the design. The main element is a bridge combining Denmark’s most trafficked freeway with the existing local […]
In the German, Niehl suburb of Cologne, the old Ford residential complex has been completely renovated. While living standards have increased, demand for heating has declined by 94%. A heating concept from Danfoss has played an important part in the renovation.
