EnergyLab Nordhavn – New Urban Energy Infrastructures

The project utilizes Copenhagen’s Nordhavn as a full-scale smart city energy lab and demonstrates how electricity and heating, energy-efficient buildings and electric transport can be integrated into an intelligent, flexible and optimized energy system.

The project participants are: DTUCity of Copenhagen, CPH City & Port Development, HOFOR, Radius, ABB, Danfoss, Balslev, CleanCharge, Glen Dimplex, METRO THERM and the PowerLabDK facilities. The project is supported by EUDP (Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Programme).

Facts about EnergyLab Nordhavn

The project integrates research, development and demonstration and is a large-scale project that contributes to the grand challenge of transforming the energy system to efficiently integrate a large share of renewable energy, a means to support international and national climate goals.

The project focuses on the cost-effective future smart energy system that integrates multiple energy infrastructures (electricity, thermal, transportation) and provides an intelligent control of subsystems and components – providing necessary energy flexibility for efficient utilization of renewable energy.

The project has a total budget of DKK 143m (€ 19m), of which DKK 84m (€ 11m) are funded in two rounds by the Danish Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Programme (EUDP).
