Developing new technologies and sustainable fuels to meet the challenges in the transportation system
The transportation sector accounts for almost a quarter of CO2 emissions in the EU. And with 95 per cent of the energy consumption in the transportation sector coming from oil-based products, it causes a serious health issue and an increase in premature deaths. Luckily, due to research and development within the transportation sector, the share of green alternatives is increasing. New technologies and sustainable fuels are being developed, which focus on alternatives such as electricity, biomass, hydrogen and other renewables. In Denmark, both public and private stakeholders are trying out alternatives, moving towards a zero-emission transportation system.
We invite you to explore solutions related to alternative fuels in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest related news and discover real-life case examples of how alternative fuels can help solve your environmental issues.

Utilising linkages between sectors to best use renewable energy has a huge potential in the reduction of CO2 emissions. Digitised and energy efficient consumption, electrification and a comprehensive renewable energy system are all variables in the quest for huge CO2 reductions.
Denmark is investing in the the energy storage and sector coupling technologies of the future. Two large-scale Power-to-X projects have been awarded grants totalling EUR 17.1 million, which will allow us to use green power as fuel for busses, airplanes and ships in the future.
With a worldwide focus on reducing CO2 emitted into the atmosphere and eliminating harmful particle emission from the automotive industry, AIWAYS, a Shanghai-based personal mobility provider, has teamed up with the Danish developer and manufacturer of high-temperature methanol fuel cells, Blue World Technologies. The collaboration is based on AIWAYS’ overall goal to create the next generation of sustainable vehicles.
Worldwide, the climate is changing mainly due to too much CO2 emitted into the atmosphere. At the same time, 91% of the world’s population lives in places where air pollution exceeds WHO guideline limits resulting in 4.2 million premature deaths each year.
The World Economic Forum, the Global Maritime Forum and Friends of Ocean Action launched the “Getting to Zero Coalition” at last week’s UN Climate Action Summit, with the goal of decarbonising the international maritime shipping sector by 2030. The coalition represents leaders from across the maritime, energy, infrastructure and finance sectors and is supported by decision-makers from government and international organisations.
The next application round for P4G funding to partnerships with a sustainable business model is open. Funding of between USD 100,000 to USD 1,000,000 is available to either partnerships with a start-up or a scale-up concept.
Tackling marine emissions The Taiwanese port city of Kaohsiung relies on its marine network to transport machined goods across its bustling harbor. It is the thirteenth largest in the world. Kaohsiung is typical of many harbor cities in Asia, where diesel ferries are a necessary part of life. Yet this activity comes at a cost, […]
For a while now, the fact that electric vehicles can play an important part as energy storage in the future Smart Grid has been a hot topic in both the e-mobility and the energy industry. The reason being the likely business potential to sell excess electricity back to the grid when needed. The leading electric […]
The transport sector is responsible for about a third of the CO2 emissions in Denmark, and the focus is often on how to reduce the pollution from private motoring. The maritime sector has not yet had the same exposure, even though e.g. huge and heavy diesel driven ferries also have a negative impact on the […]
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, […]
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, […]
