We provide consulting services and participate in scientific research in the field of energy, green transition, and climate change. Our expertise is analyses of energy systems, energy markets and potential impact of new technologies and policies.

We use advanced mathematical modelling to generate the full picture of energy systems and the cross-sector interconnections. We develop scenarios showing the most feasible and low-cost pathways to accomplish a green transition on national, regional, and local levels and for specific sectors. Likewise, we estimate long-term production capacity and demand and develop scenarios of the optimal ways to produce green energy. Our services include capacity building as well as support of consensus building and decision-making processes.

Overview of all projects

  • Best locations of PtX plants
    What could be the best locations of PtX plants in the Nordics? The answer to this question is one of the expected outcomes of the PtX Sector Coupling and LCA project. Energy Modelling Lab is collaborating with 13 partners.
  • Analysis of future energy market
    Energy Modelling Lab has made an analyses of the future energy market in Northern Europe. The analysis has served as reference in a major report on future Danish hydrogen infrastructure published by CIP Foundation.
  • Local dialogue on green transition
    Energy Modelling Lab is participating in a series of meetings to support an informed local dialogue on green transition. We present facts about green energy production and estimates of future demand.
  • Grøn dialog i Vordingborg
    I Vordingborg Kommune forventes efterspørgslen på grøn strøm at stige i de kommende år. Men hvor skal strømmen komme fra? Energy Modelling Lab har deltaget i en grøn energi dialog med borgerne.
  • Grøn dialog i Kalundborg
    I Kalundborg forventes forbruget af grøn strøm at blive mere end fordoblet frem til 2050. Energy Modelling Lab har deltaget i en grøn energi dialog med borgerne. Hvor skal strømmen komme fra?
  • Teaching energy system modelling
    For several years, Ida Græsted Jensen, PhD, and partner in Energy Modelling Lab, has been teaching professionals how to understand and use energy system modelling including the Balmorel model.
  • Supporting the Council on Climate Change
    Energy Modelling Lab is updating and handing over the Danish Biomass Resource Model, DK-BioRes, that we developed a few years ago. The model features all Danish biomass resources from agriculture, forestry, and aquaculture.
  • Viet Nam to reach net-zero emissions
    Viet Nam aims to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. Energy Modelling Lab is developing scenarios that will be used in a new energy-system model for the upcoming Energy Outlook Report 2023.
  • Enhancing energy planning in Viet Nam
    We are assisting the Vietnamese authorities to build up their planning capacities. To this end we have updated the technology catalogue that is integrated in the TIMES-VNM model. It includes technologies not yet being used in Viet Nam.
  • Net-zero emissions in Kuwait
    We are supporting steps to reach net-zero emissions in Kuwait by 2060. By developing an energy modelling framework, we can identify pathways to integrate new solutions across key-sectors.
  • Low emission strategy in Jordan
    We are supporting the Jordanian Government in developing a strategy to reach the low carbon emission target 2050. Our model is showing the optimal pathways through the jungle of technological solutions.
  • New biogas module
    In collaboration with The Danish Energy Agency, we have updated the TIMES models by developing and integrating a new detailed module that represents both existing and potential biogas technologies.
  • Heat pumps are the future of district heating
    Electric heat pumps and surplus heating will take over the district heating marked. Is the loss of thermal plants a problem?
  • Future heating & cooling in Dublin
    Modelling thermal energy networks in Dublin as part of the TEN21 platform.
  • A mosaic of district heating
    The future district heating systems consist of a variety of heating solutions that are sustainable, inexpensive and locally anchored.
  • Clean Nordic shipping
    Run scenarios to find the optimal path to a fossil free shipping industry in the Nordic countries.
  • Energy strategy in Azerbaijan
    Support to the Government of Azerbaijan in development and implementation of a long-term energy strategy
  • Danish Bioresource Model
    Developing a model to support a green transition within agriculture and forestry.
  • Energy outlook in Vietnam
    Supporting the Vietnamese government in the transition into their future energy system.
  • Nordic Clean Energy Scenarios
    Identifying paths to a fully carbon neutral Nordic region.
  • Collaboration with Southern University of Denmark
    Teaching Energy System Modelling and supervising students.
  • PhD-course at DTU in energy modelling
    Training the future energy modelers at the Technical University of Denmark.
  • Educational platform – KAOS
    The platform focuses on climate change and energy system modelling for Danish high school students.
  • Reducing air pollution saves billions of kroner
    Saved health costs from air pollution reduce the costs of the green transition
  • Energy planning in Ukraine
    Support the implementation of national energy planning in Ukraine, through model building and scenario analysis.
  • Clean energy in Korean schools
    Analysing the climate, health and economic impact of switching to clean energy sources in Korean schools.
  • Engaging in the modelling community
    To stay in the top of the game, it is crucial to keep updated and share knowledge in the global modelling community.
  • CO2-streams
    Adding both carbon capture technologies and the utilisation and storage of CO2 to the energy system models.
  • Time slicing tool for energy models
    Developing a flexible tool to select the right time intervals for the TIMES models.
