Energy Education is vital to making Net Zero cost-effective

Putting a bandage on a broken arm, that is very much how the Energy Bills Support, and the Energy Bills Relief schemes feel like. Although these schemes are very much welcome in tackling the rise in energy costs, it does raise concerns whether this is too short-sighted and will hurt in the long run. Perhaps encouraging energy conscious behaviour and promoting good energy habits is also required?

CHP powered by renewable gas – Integral to Net Zero

In Denmark, renewables are widely referred to as the “champagne of energy”. Because we can’t always rely on the sun to shine or the wind to blow, renewable energy will always be scarce and therefore a costly resource that should be used sparingly and intelligently. Hence, satisfying our future energy requirements from renewables will always require a guaranteed supply of energy.

Heat Plan for Denmark 2021

Denmark has a target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 70% in 2030 and a goal of 100% climate neutrality in 2050. Fundamental to achieving this goal is the transition of the Danish heating sector to near-zero CO2 emissions by 2030.

To assess how the heat sector can transform in a technically, economically, and environmentally appropriate way in such a short period of time, researchers at the University of Aalborg (AUU) developed the Heat Plan Denmark 2021. This document sets out how the heating sector can transform relatively quickly using technologies that are already available.
