  • Fremtidens grønne energi 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.
  • 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?
