China Renewable Energy Outlook 2018
The China Renewable Energy Outlook 2018 provides a status on the Chinese energy transition and updated scenarios for the decarbonization of energy in China towards 2050. The report was launched at the end of 2018 at several events, including a joint seminar with the International Energy Agency in Beijing in November and at the Chinese pavilion at COP 24 in Katowice in December.

China Renewable Energy Outlook is published annually as a part of the five-year program ‘Boosting Renewable Energy as a part of China’s Energy Revolution’ – a multilateral effort led by the China National Renewable Energy Centre. The work is supported by the Children’s Investment Fund foundation and the Danish and German governments.

Ea Energy Analyses has contributed substantially to the report as well as the previous outlooks. Read more about the project here.






Launch of Lombok Energy Outlook
A few weeks ago, the Danish Energy Agency officially published the Lombok Energy Outlook, an analysis carried out by Ea Energy Analyses on the Indonesian island, located in the province of West Nusa Tenggara, close to the island of Bali.

In the analysis, it is underlined how renewable energy can compete with fossil fuels and supply 58% of the electricity consumption at no extra cost, in case current subsidies to coal and gas are removed.


The topic has also been featured in an article in EnergyWatch

EAducation: Introduction to Balmorel for the Danish Energy Agency
Last week Ea Energy Analyses carried out a 5-days course of the power system model Balmorel with a focus on energy planning and analysis of the power sector in developing countries. The participants, 11 advisors from the International Cooperation department at the Danish Energy Agency, got certified as Balmorel Analyst and Operator Level 1.

The enthusiasm and feedback have been overwhelmingly positive.





Intelligent buildings in a smart energy system
Sweco and Ea Energy Analysis have on behalf of the Danish Energy Agency prepared an assessment of the potential for building contribution to flexibility in the electricity and heating system. The analysis concludes that there is the greatest socioeconomic value and profitability when changing the supply form, such as switching from natural gas and district heating to electricity via hybrid heat pump when electricity prices are low. In addition, the analysis points out the importance of consumer tariffs reflecting real marginal transmission and distribution costs in order to mobilize the flexibility potential.

Read the analysis "Energieffektive og intelligente bygninger i et smart energisystem" (Danish), where the potential for different flexibility measures and the profitability of exploiting these potentials is assessed.






Denmark takes over the management of Task 32 with lead from Ea Energy Analysis
With the IEA Bioenergy Task 32, the International Energy Agency has a unique forum for discussion and knowledge sharing about the development of biomass combustion and co-firing which is widely used in Denmark and the other member states and is an important tool for achieving the greenhouse gas emission reduction targets. The cooperation consists of 12 member states whose representatives gather at semi-annual business meetings and associated workshops, where solutions to current technical topics are discussed.

The purpose of the Danish participation in the group is to disseminate Danish policies and solutions, as well as results from Danish RDD activities and projects on biomass combustion and plants, as well as gathering knowledge about the corresponding activities and markets in other countries and disseminating them to the Danish network. Denmark has been in Task 32 for over 20 years.

Task 32 has been led by the Netherlands for many years. From 2019 Denmark will take over the management with Morten Tony Hansen from Ea Energy Analysis as lead, in collaboration with national Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Programme (EUDP). The work consists of realising the group's work program, i.e. in that meetings and workshops are held and reported, that there is progress in the projects and that the results are disseminated.

The work program for 2019-2021 has been under development in 2017-18. Activities concentrate on:


  • Improvement of small scale biomass combustion units such as stoves and boilers in terms of efficiency and emissions and performance in real-life operation
  • Integration of efficient and fuel-flexible biomass power in energy systems
  • Biomass-based high temperature heat for industrial processes
  • Project collaboration with other working groups in IEA Bioenergy


Ea Energy Analysis represents Denmark in IEA Bioenergy Task 32 and leads the group until the end of 2021. Ea Energy Analysis also represents Denmark in IEA Bioenergy Task 33, which deals with gasification of biomass and waste.
