Testing and developing future smart energy solutions in user-centred, transparent ecosystems
Smart energy solutions in Denmark are often developed through so-called Living Labs, where energy solutions are tested and developed in user-centred, transparent ecosystems. Through co-creation processes, cost-effective future smart energy systems that integrate multiple energy infrastructures (electricity, thermal, transportation) are developed in real life, allowing citizens, public institutions and private actors alike to contribute to the development and exploration of emerging energy solutions. The labs function as major showrooms for both national and international customers, as well as unique platforms for public and private innovation.
We invite you to explore solutions related to Smart energy Living Labs in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest Smart energy Living Labs news and discover real-life case examples of how Smart energy Living Labs can help solve your energy issues.

Data-optimised traffic lights, sensors on public waste bins, district heating and electric ferries. These are among the many solutions to enhance cities’ liveability and sustainability. These and many more solutions are highlighted in State of Green’s updated smart city white paper.
On October 4, a delegation from the Chinese first-class university, Tsinghua University, was in Denmark to learn about the Danish solutions within energy efficiency and district heating. The delegation visited State of Green’s showroom, House of Green, and EnergyLab Nordhavn.
South Korea has a strong focus on smart city and big data solutions that can make cities more intelligent, liveable and sustainable. Therefore, a delegation group of South Korean government officials, business representatives and researchers visited Denmark to explore the innovative digital solutions that can address cities’ energy, environment and climate-related challenges.
A new energy solution in Nordhavn, a Danish bicycle path in China and the iconic Velux window are among the winners of this year’s Danish Design Award – all of which represent design solutions that contribute to the UN Sustainable Development 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.
EU carbon prices are set to double by 2021 and could quadruple to €55 a tonne by 2030 if the European Union aligns its emissions targets with the Paris Agreement on climate change, finds a new report by Carbon Tracker, a think tank.
Following the partnership agreement Denmark and the German state of Baden-Württemberg entered into in 2017, a German delegation travelled to Denmark last week to discuss new approaches and innovative solutions that increase energy efficiency in buildings.
Since the installation of the large-scale battery at the smart city EnergyLab in Nordhavn in February last year, the Danish DSO Radius has gained unique and useful insight into the management of the battery and its connected grid.
Denmark’s data-driven fairytale shows no sign of slowing, with news that tech giant Google has purchased its second plot of land in Denmark, as an option for the location of a data centre. Apple Inc is already constructing two data centres in Denmark, while Facebook is constructing one, suggesting Denmark is developing into a European data centre hub.
Management and control of the power consumption in commercial buildings represents both cost saving and earning potentials. A prerequisite for harvesting the benefits from implementing Smart Grid solutions is access to flexible electricity consumption. Such flexible consumption could potentially be found in commercial buildings that today are operated by a Building Manage System. The aim […]
The number of large cities continues to rise across the globe. In the future, such densely populated and heavily trafficked cities will become increasingly challenged on the energy and environmental front, especially in relation to the supply and consumption of energy, as well as the pollution caused by e.g. the transport sector. Demonstration of Smart Cities in Europe The […]
The somewhat limited range is one of the biggest obstacles for electric vehicles. The MECc project will develop a range extender, which should optimally be able to provide a range of up to 800 km on a full charge and fill-up. Bio-methanol based range extender for electric vehicles The main purpose of the MECc project […]
With the movement towards replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy sources, the future power system will experience growing challenges in balancing the fluctuating power production and utilizing the renewable energy production to the fullest. Commercialisation of grid-integrated electric vehicles The Parker-project demonstrates how grid-integrated electric vehicles can play a role in solving this growing challenge, […]
Insero and its department Mobility are the project managers of CIPED (Compact Intelligent Powerful Electric Drivetrain) and in charge of the development of a business analysis for the commercialisation of the CIPED-solution. A limited driving range is still a challenge for the electric vehicles and there is a current need for new innovate solutions that can […]
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.
The hotel room of tomorow What’s it like, the hotel room of tomorrow? We answer that question with two smart guest rooms at Green Solution House. We focused on choosing quality interiors, which meant prioritizing recyclability and sustainability certifications, when it came to selecting our materials and furnishings. Air cleaning carpets, recyclable tiles, low energy […]
Do something about the energy resources As the world’s population grows and emerging economies expands rapidly, global demand and competition for energy are set to intensify in the decades to come. This will probably drive up prices of the world’s finite oil and other fossil fuel resources. Our energy resources are concentrated largely in a […]
System Integration of Wind Power – Experiences from Denmark Integration of variable renewables into the grid is sometimes and misleadingly presented as an invincible task. The Danish case proves this wrong with around 30% wind in the power supply – planning for 50% in 2020. Long-term planning In Denmark, long-term planning has ensured timely and […]
