Invitation: Danish meets German energy transition

Ea Energy Analysis, Agora Energiewende, Danish Energy Agency and DTU Management Engineering invites to the event "Danish Meets German Energy Transition" on May 26th, from 10 am to 4 pm in Copenhagen. Participation is free of charge.

Denmark and Germany are undergoing the transition from a fossil fuel-based system towards a system with high shares of variable renewable generation. It gives opportunities as well as challenges that Denmark and Germany have in common.


During this event a number of questions will be discussed, e.g. what are recent developments in the energy policy in the two countries and how affect these developments each other?

New analysis of the Danish potential for exploiting geothermal heat

In co-operation with the Geothermal Company of the Danish District Heating Association and COWI, Ea Energy Analyses carried out a project analysing the potential for exploiting geothermal heat for district heating in 28 urban areas in Denmark.


The analysis included technical and economic assessment of local geothermal plants as well as thorough analysis of the integration in the existing and future district heating systems.


The analysis shows that geothermal energy will only be economically advantageous in a few of the areas when the existing tax system is taken into account. Socioeconomically, it looks somewhat better and in several areas, geothermal heat is competitive with other forms of heat production.


Overall, geothermal has low economic potential, mainly due to competition with biomass which is exempt from tax and this is considered to be the greatest barrier to the expansion of geothermal energy.

The master plan for Eastern Africa is published

After the approval last week, the master plan is now available. The master plan consists of an Executive summary, Volume I: Main report, Volume II: Data report and Volume III: Result report.


In the executive summary, the focus is on decisions that can be taken in the short term. Therefore, it discusses the possible development of the electricity system towards 2020 and 2025, with the long-term perspectives (towards 2040) provided in the other volumes of the master plan.

Energy Cost Calculator


Energy Cost Calculator


The Energy Cost Calculator is an interactive online tool that allows its users to include and adjust parameters related to electricity generation for various technologies, thus facilitating a comparative analysis.


The calculator allows for a flexible experience. Among the possibilities, is the option to choose between different energy scenarios, interest rates, etc., and all calculations can be downloaded as either images or spreadsheets.
