Educating the future generation on how to tackle the climate crisis is essential.
Energy Modelling Lab has developed a new educational platform KAOS, containing exercises within Mathematics, Social science, Geography, and Physics.
The platform focuses on climate change and energy system modelling and provides the students with the challenging task within Energy systems and planning, Carbon budgets, agriculture scenarios, and more.
When discussing how expensive the green transition becomes for the Danish society, it is important to consider more aspects than only the investments needed.
Our results show that when looking solely on the saved health costs from the reduction in air pollution, the society can save 10 to 20 billion Danish kroner per year.
Several Danish studies estimates the cost of the transition to be approximately 13 to 26 billion Danish kroner a year from 2025 to the year when the transition is complete. These costs often do not include the savings for the society in terms of, e.g., less air pollution.
The Korea New Green Deal highlights that a total of $15.3 billion is invested, in Zero Energy Public Buildings by 2025. The focus on Zero Energy Buildings have a specific target on schools including remodeling old school buildings. The aim is to make them energy-efficient and run by solar power.
In this study Energy Modeling Lab analyses the impacts from changing the energy supply in South Korea’s school buildings. The three focus areas are on greenhouse gasses, air pollution and health, and economic consequences.
Energy Modelling Lab is engaging in the biannual ETSAP workshops, that focus on the practice of modelling. We also participate in training activities and collaboration on projects related to the improvement of ETSAP tools such as the TIMES models.
The contribution to these workshops are based on current and future projects, particular within EU, Nordic and Danish research programs.
It is a key piece in the future energy puzzle to capture carbon. CO2 is captured directly from the air, from industry chimneys or in agriculture. This carbon can be used for two things. Either you can produce CO2-neutral fuels through Power2X-technologies. Alternatively the CO2 can be stored in the ground.
The project investigates the cost, potential and limitations to the carbon streams.
MODELLING These new technologies, that can deliver and utilise carbon capture, was added to the Danish Energy System Model (TIMES-DK). This allows the model to run scenarios that achieves long term climate neutrality.
