The cost of fossil free energy supply in Denmark

Regulation and policy measures | November 2015 - January 2016

In this project, Ea Energy Analyses identified the marginal energy system costs of the transition to a green Danish energy supply in an analysis for the Danish Economic Councils

The analysis was undertaken with recent energy scenario analyses for the Danish Energy Agency as the point of departure. For each of several energy services – including electricity supply, individual, district and industrial heating supply, and several transport categories – the costs were identified on the basis of the ‘Wind’ and ‘Fossil’ scenarios of the Danish Energy Agency.

Ea’s results fed into the analyses of the Danish Economic Councils in their recent report ‘Economy and Environment, 2016’.

The project was carried out between November 2015 and January 2016.
