The possibilities for sustainable heating and cooling are many, but where is central heating the best option? And what local heat sources are available in different areas? These are some of the questions we are going to help answer in Dublin.
A cool collaboration
Energy Modelling Lab has joined the TEN21 project. Here we are going to help cities all over Europe deliver climate friendly thermal energy.
TEN21 consists of a strong team. Firstly energy modelers build a digital version of the heat system. Thereafter we use the model output to create net zero scenarios. Finally investment experts step in to ensure the plans can become reality. This ensures the entire development path from early planning to financing the implementation.
Sewage as part of the future heating and cooling?
If you want to learn more about recycling heat from for example sewage, metros, and datacenters, then go to TEN21.eu.
MODELLING DUBLIN We develop an optimization model within the TIMES-framework.
First and foremost covers the heat and power sector in Dublin. But this model has an especially high level of detail.
NEUTRAL SCENARIOS Energy Modelling Lab is developing a series of CO2-neutral scenarios for cooling and heating in Dublin.
In this way we can find the perfect fit for each district.
The project Nordic Clean Energy Scenarios aims at identifying technological solutions to a fully carbon neutral Nordic region. It further aims at developing energy scenarios for the Nordic energy sector enabling the Nordic commitment to reach carbon neutrality.
Collaborating on finding the right solutions
NCES2020 brings together nine teams from four Nordic countries, with complementing modelling and analytical skills. Combined with use of open access energy system models and data, this strengthens Nordic cooperation and expertise in energy modelling.
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.
