New Danish district heating cooperation will help China achieve its climate goals
Today, around a third of the world's energy is used on heating and cooling. Especially in China, the potential for green heating is huge. Based on this, UNEP DTU Partnership and the Danish Energy Agency are entering into a new cooperation agreement on district heating in China.
The tender for Hesselø OFW has been put on hold
There is a need to analyze the results of the preliminary site investigation further as soft clay formations have been found in the upper 20-30 meters below the seabed.
New agreement about Hesselø Offshore Windfarm is a step closer to net zero subsidies to offshore wind
The Danish wind adventure has been on a path towards net zero subsidies for some years. The agreement on the subsidy scheme for Hesselø Offshore Wind Farm is a step closer to that political objective.
Danish approach inspires Mexican industry giants to enroll in energy efficiency program
With inspiration from Denmark, a number of Mexican energy intensive companies, such as Nestlé, Bimbo and Audi, have signed a voluntary agreement for energy efficiency. They have committed to increase their energy efficiency and the agreements signed so far will reduce emissions with more than 55.000 tons CO2eq per year. This corresponds to the annual emissions of 12.000 Danish households.
China could reach 2030-renewable energy target faster than expected
Key results from upcoming China Renewable Energy Outlook 2020 show the importance of a fast development of wind and solar to achieve China’s targets of the Paris Agreement. In 2020, China added a record of 120 gigawatt wind and solar PV. A development that shows it is realistic to reach the 1,200 GW target even before the estimated target in 2030.
Great interest in building the Danish Thor Offshore Wind Farm
The Danish Energy Agency has prequalified a total of six consortia and companies to participate in the tender for Denmark's largest offshore wind farm to date: Thor Offshore Wind Farm with a capacity of minimum 800-1000 MW.
Danish Energy Agency and IFU strengthen cooperation on green energy in developing and emerging countries
There is a great need for green energy in developing and emerging countries, and many Danish companies have the right solutions. An agreement between the Danish Energy Agency and the Investment Fund for Developing Countries, IFU, will contribute to sharing of the Danish green transition experience and financing solutions within green energy in a number of countries, such as India, Egypt, Ethiopia,
Electricity storage can play a crucial role in Mexico’s fulfilment of its climate goals, according to a new Danish-Mexican study
63 million tons. That is the amount of CO2 emissions that Mexico can cut per year in 2050 if the country achieves an optimal integration of large-scale electricity storage into the energy system. This is the conclusion in a brand new Danish-Mexican study. The reduction is equivalent to almost double the Danish CO2 emissions from energy consumption today.
