EnergyLab Nordhavn

The project “EnergyLab Nordhavn – new urban energy infrastructures” will develop and demonstrate future energy solutions. The project utilizes Copenhagen’s Nordhavn as a full-scale smart city energy lab and demonstrates how electricity and heating, energy-efficient buildings and electric transport can be integrated into an intelligent, flexible and optimized energy system. The project participants are: DTU, City of Copenhagen, CPH City & Port Development, HOFOR, Radius, ABB, Balslev, Danfoss, CleanCharge, METRO THERM, Glen Dimplex and the PowerLabDK facilities. The project is supported by EUDP (Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Programme) and runs from 2015-2019.

On Tuesday 22 August Center for Electric Power and Energy (CEE), DTU Elektro was awarded for visualising smart energy solutions in a simple way.

EnergyLab Nordhavn is a lighthouse project within smart energy” was one of the acclaims when Center for Electric Power and Energy (CEE) in collaboration with Kirt & Thomsen was awarded €15.000 for their contribution ‘Visual communication of smart energy solutions in Nordhavn’ at the Climate-KIC Nordic Ideation Day II 2017 on 22 August.

Smart energy solutions are often complex, integrating various factors such as different energy sectors, infrastructures, components, data exchanges as well as all the different actors, markets and business models. The purpose of the visualisation is therefore to communicate smart energy solutions in a simple way while still illustrating the technical details.

One of the arguments for the award was also that the visualisation may be used in other smart energy projects around the world – an approach that was supported by agreements of collaboration made at the event with several other actors from the energy sector, present at the Climate KIC event.

The visual presentation will be used to support both the internal and external communication of the smart, integrated energy solutions demonstrated in the EnergyLab Nordhavn project.
