Data infrastructure for facilitating data in projects

Center Denmark participates in a wide range of national and European projects, where our role is to facilitate data between partners – often utility companies, research institutions, and businesses.

We ensure easy and secure access to utility data enriched with, for example, weather data and building data in specific sectors or across utilities. Center Denmark's role allows research institutions and businesses to focus more on developing use cases and applying data to them, rather than building new data platforms from project to project.

Center Denmark currently provides data infrastructure for the following projects, benefiting the research institutions that are also participating:

ARV Nyeste

ARV is a project that strives to create climate-positive circular communities where people can thrive for many generations to come. As the digitalization hub, Center Denmark will manage all data from the project and therefore plays a key role in its development.


The main objective of the ELEXIA project is to further develop and upgrade tools for planning integrated energy systems and to become independent of fossil fuels. This will be demonstrated at three demo sites in Høje-Taastrup (Denmark), Bergen (Norway), and Sines (Portugal). As the digital innovation hub, Center Denmark will help manage the digital infrastructure and data management.

Seeds Ny Ny

The overarching goal of SEEDS is to boost the electrification of heating systems in buildings through an integrated approach that combines energy renovation and intelligent control of heating and cooling systems.

Biped Ny Ny
The project involves the creation of CO2-neutral urban districts. Center Denmark participates in the project based on our data platform, and our primary role is to support our partners' ability to develop new data-driven services to ultimately improve the use of energy resources in a given area.

The aim of the project is to increase energy efficiency at Hirtshals Harbour through data-driven analyses. Requirements for data forecasting, optimization of green electricity consumption, flexibility, grid capacity, and services for electricity markets will be analyzed, along with opportunities for sector coupling at the harbor. Center Denmark provides the data platform used to collect data and make it available for analysis and integrations.


COPPER helps cities in the North Sea region fulfill their new role as coordinators of local energy systems. The project positions the North Sea region as a frontrunner for the flexible energy systems of the future. Capacity is being built in the participating municipalities through a digital toolbox that can support processes and decisions in the municipalities.

Center Denmark is working with AAU and the Municipality of Fredericia to create a digital pilot for Fredericia's electricity grid where various scenarios are tested.

Training Data for Students

Center Denmark has developed a range of tools for anonymizing data, using more or less advanced methods depending on the need. There is a constant focus on balancing usability and anonymization, ensuring the delivery of high-quality utility data enriched with, for example, weather data, building data, market data, topological data, and much more.

Using these tools, Center Denmark can create training data that is sufficiently anonymized to be used by individual students or entire classes. The aim is to develop new algorithms that can be integrated into digital products to optimize the Danish energy and utility system.

Microdata for students 

In some cases, more "raw" data is needed to conduct analyses or projects. Center Denmark has developed legal tools and pseudonymization techniques that allow individual students to access data that is not aggregated or otherwise altered; in other words, microdata.

This can be particularly relevant for bachelor's or master's theses in STEM programs, where unmanipulated data is required. Here, the data is pseudonymized – meaning, for example, addresses and grid references are obscured, and non-disclosure agreements are made with the students.

Hosting of Digital Models

Currently, a range of digital models are being developed in various research projects for which Center Denmark facilitates data. As part of Center Denmark's infrastructure, it is also possible to host these digital models here – and furthermore, connect directly to data in a protected zone. This ensures that the models are further developed after the project and that they are used more broadly in the industry with the possibility of accessing a wider spectrum of data.

Example 1: BEEM Model - Building Energy Efficiency Model

The BEEM model (Building Energy Efficiency Model) is developed by DTU Compute for data-driven analysis of building energy consumption with the aim of better energy labeling of heat consumption – for use in energy efficiency improvements, and for example, obtaining loans for energy upgrades in buildings.

Example 2: Software Tool Energy Metaverse

The software tool Energy Metaverse, developed by SDU, is a digital twin evaluation environment that allows for testing a multitude of scenarios in the electricity distribution network – for instance, how the system is affected by more electric vehicles, or how the system is influenced by different ways of controlling heat pumps. It is thus possible to test new control tools for electric vehicles, heat pumps, household batteries, etc., before they are implemented on a larger scale in the electricity grid.
