The ambition to achieve a fully sustainable energy system and go from about one third fluctuating renewable energy (RE) across the systems to 100 % RE introduces a need for sector coupling across electricity, heat, gas and water supply plus abolish industrial borders to identify and utilize inherent flexibilities as virtual storage within the existing systems and industries.
We will enter a new paradigm for balancing the energy systems where we focus on intelligently consuming energy instead of trying to control a fluctuating RE production. Thereby, we can limit the need for additional new production, grid and storage capacity and still meet the ambition. It requires a data intelligent energy system and innovative new business models to create the needed dynamic and behavior across the entire value chain.
Center Denmark is established as a non-profit and independent organization working to promote development of digitally integrated energy systems in order to enhance society’s transition to renewable energy sources and reduce environmental impact.
Center Denmark contributes to establishing a national framework to promote research, education, innovation & development, testing and demonstration in connection with the transition to a fossil-free green society, building the foundation for a Danish “Silicon Valley” of energy systems.
