Stabilising the energy system against fluctuating imbalances between supply and demand requires the ability to store energy generated by wind, solar and other renewables for later use
Stabilising the energy system against fluctuating imbalances between supply and demand requires the ability to store energy generated by wind, solar and other renewables for later use. Currently, it is difficult to store energy at the necessary scale without a significant loss, and not one storage technology will do the job alone. In Denmark, integrating energy systems across gas, electricity, thermal energy and transportation, as well as increased electrification of the energy sector, serve as multiple, local storage capacities e.g. by converting power to gas or using electric vehicles. Both in Denmark and abroad, much research focuses on chemical energy storage, batteries and thermal energy storage.
We invite you to explore solutions related to energy storage in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest news and discover real-life case examples of how energy storage can help solve your environmental and energy challenges.

Denmark is establishing two new energy islands off the coast of Denmark. The energy islands will be completed by 2030, and will be able to supply 5 GW of power from offshore windfarms. This is enough to meet the average electricity consumption of 5 million households. New visualisations reveal what the larger of the two islands may look like.
This project demonstrates how smart cities are built on smart solutions that promote synergies between district heating, district cooling, waste water, ground water and power while benefiting the local community.
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.
On a small island in Denmark, green energy solutions are being developed. The transition is ambitious but necessary, both when it comes to the overall sustainability of the island as well as for the future success of a green Denmark. Besides the energy project which includes two wind turbines from Viking Wind, there is a […]
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.
A test model of a new type of energy storage has been inaugurated at DTU Risoe, Denmark. The innovative technology has a large potential for storing wind and solar energy. NIRAS consulted on the model’s design.
Energy storage is an important part of the energy transition. “Whitebook Energy storage technologies in a Danish and international perspective” aims to inform about the status, needs and perspectives for energy storage technologies, and sets out milestones to guide decision makers, industry and research communities on how to trigger storage as an instrument to achieve the climate goals.
Aalborg CSP has received the largest order in terms of megawatt power to deliver steam generator systems based on the leakage-free header-and-coil technology for three CSP plants in Dubai, each providing 200 MWe totalling 600 MWe for the largest CSP project in the world. When completed, the solar park will provide clean energy to more than 270,000 residences in Dubai, while reducing the carbon emissions by 1.4 million tonnes per year.
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.
New name, new style: The previously named HH Ferries Group, which operates the busy ferry route between the Danish and Swedish coastal towns of Helsingør and Helsingborg has not only changed its name to ForSea Ferries to reflect its environmental strategy, but has also officially launched its two long-awaited, solely battery-powered passenger ferries, which are the largest of their kind.
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.
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.
Danish Solar Energy Ltd. has always taken initiative in being innovative in the solar-industry.

We are also looking for distributors for our complete systems suited […]
Program purpose Companies in the energy and climate industries face unique challenges: Political policy uncertainty Macroeconomic market trends and relationships New technologies and efficiency improvements interact in a complex system This system is particularly unpredictable and volatile in the energy and climate industry so it is crucial that executives are able to manage risk effectively, […]
This Sino-Danish project deals with research, development and demonstration of a full-scale microgrid. The work will be carried out by two highly rated Universities, Aalborg University (Denmark) and Tsinghua University (China), in cooperation with Kamstrup, leader of smartmeters and smargrid ready components in Denmark and the company Shanghai Solar Energy Science & Technology Co. Ltd, […]

The increased demand for air conditioning and cooling has led to higher electricity consumption in many cities. In our effort to provide low carbon cooling, we have built the first two district cooling networks. They are based on free cooling from seawater abstraction, along with running surplus heat from the district heating network through absorption […]
Reducing emissions from internal combustion engines has been a major environmental concern. Up to now, most of the focus has been on exhaust gases. However, crankcase gas has now come into focus as an area where further emission reductions can, and should, be made. PureVent is a compact centrifugal oil mist separator that, when connected […]
