The EU green deal proposes an ‘energy renovation wave’ of the EU's public and private building stock that requires the Nordics in particular, with its cold climate, to commit to massive private investment. The necessary investments, though profitable on paper, are not being carried out, causing the so-called "energy efficiency gap". The Nordic Energy Efficient Mortgages Hub aims therefore to solve this issue by promoting energy renovations of building stock in the Nordics.
Center Denmark will take part in the NEEM Initiative along with experts from the financial sector, mortgage specialists, behavioral scientists, and authorities on digital technologies from all across the Nordics but also at European level, all under the coordination of Copenhagen Economics.
The Cool Data project aims to develop a flexible cooling and storage system, powered by artificial intelligence, for small and medium-sized data centers with up to 500 servers. The system stores renewable energy when there is plenty of it while allowing surplus heat from the servers to be used for district heating. Center Denmark's platform enables the project partners to test and demonstrate the project solutions and also hosts the research models and software.
Acronym: Cool Data
Participants: 8 participants
Duration: 3 years, kick-off Sep 2020
Funding: Funded by Danish Innovation Fund with 13 mil DKK and a total budget of 18.3 mil DKK.
Flexible Energy Denmark
Center Denmark is a key partner in the Flexible Energy Denmark project. The project focus on digitalization and making energy consumption flexible. Digital solutions will unlock flexibilities in the Living Labs. In the project the basic principles of a data lake with AI-tools and solutions for the participating Living Labs are developed.
Participants: 28 participants
Duration: 4 year, kick-off April 2019
Funding: Funded by Danish Innovation Fund with 30 mio DKK and a total budget of 44 mio DKK.
Energy production from solar and wind rises and falls more than traditional energy sources as weather conditions change.
As more renewable energy is integrated in the future, the effect of fluctuating production will increase significantly. It challenges both security of supply and the stability of energy supply.
E Balance Plus
Ebalanceplus project aims to increase energy flexibility of distribution grids with enhanced prediction algorithms, test new business models to increase market participation, support energy prosumers and electric operators with tailored end-user’s interfaces.
