Energy supply modelling in cities

The project on energy supply modelling in cities aim to develop, model and evaluate scenarious of cities in order to increase efficiency and integration of systems while at the same time minimizing CO2 emissions and socioeconomic costs.

Denmark has established the target of becoming independent of fossil fuels in the electricity and heating sectors by 2035 and of becoming fully independent of fossil fuels on a net annual basis by 2050. Such targets can only be met with a strong policy making, not only on a national level but also on more local administration levels. Most municipalities in Denmark have established their own vision and targets for making their energy systems more sustainable. Among these is the municipality of Sønderborg
in Southern Denmark, which is used as a case in this solution project.

Further description and insights into the project is coming soon.

Notat: Sådan kan dynamiske CO2-energiafgifte...

I energiforliget fra 2018 besluttede partierne at undersøge, om såkaldte dynamiske afgifter kan accelerere den grønne omstilling og vækst. I et nyt notat giver en taskforce under Danmarks største smart city-projekt, CITIES, anbefalinger til, hvordan dynamiske afgifter kan implementeres. Danmarks målsætning om 70% reduktion af CO2-udledningen i 2030 ift. 1990-niveau kræver, at vi gennemfører den …
