With the vision of Denmark as a front-runner in the green transition, the Danish Growth Team for sustainable energy and green technology has presented 10 specific recommendations to strengthen the Danish energy and utility industry. Recommendations that are spot on the work that we already do in EnergyLab Nordhavn.
The Growth Team, appointed by the Government in May 2018, has now presented 10 recommendations on how to maintain the Danish position of strength when it comes to the global green transition. Throughout the recommendations, a strong focus on digitalization of the energy industry is evident. The growth team calls for a more digitalized green sector with improved access to data and a better framework for test and demonstration of new solutions in a larger scale.
Access to data and Improved frameworks for test and demonstration
Among the recommendations are an easier and faster access to the data that utility companies collects through digital meters on electricity, water, and heating is a key factor in the further development of an intelligent energy system. Also important is the improved frameworks for test and demonstration. The Growth Team’s recommendations call for an establishment of platforms for test and demonstration of technologies across the energy sector. Much of this is already being done in EnergyLab Nordhavn
Through EnergyLab Nordhavn our experience is that there is no doubt that the rest of the world looks toward Denmark when it comes to green solutions. In 2018 alone more than 70 delegations from all over the world paid a visit to Nordhavn to learn about energy technology but also how public and private companies work together in partnerships to find solutions for the energy challenges all societies are facing.
However, for RD & D projects like EnergyLab Nordhavn and the many other energy projects in Denmark it is crucial that we have regulatory free zones to test new solutions in large scale.
Calls for action
The 10 recommendations calls for action and the Growth Teams asks the Danish Ministry of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs to implement the recommendations and play an active role coordinating new partnerships. EnergyLab Nordhavn will be happy to share our experiences and meet up with stakeholders across the industry to make sure that Denmark, also in the future, are known as a front-runner in green technology.
