Sector Seminar: Energy Transition

Renewable energy, sector coupling, district heating
Hamburg / Northern Germany and Copenhagen / Denmark - are frontrunners in the development of efficient and integrated renewable energy solutions – with fast-growing shares of renewables being integrated into the energy systems. In Northern Germany, strong development agendas are being pursued within the “Norddeutsche Energiewende 4.0 (NEW 4.0)”, and its successor project – Norddeutsches Reallabor Energiewende. In Denmark, the overall climate goal of 70% reductions in CO2 emissions by 2030 is a driver for further acceleration in renewables and energy efficiency.
Sector coupling is already at an advanced state optimizing synergies between electricity, heat, gas, industry, and transport. Multiple storage solutions are being explored and developed for future use. Meanwhile at city level, much work takes place to further enhance and expand the district heating networks and use them as a means for further integration of renewable energy, storage, flexibility and efficiency in the energy system.
