Energi på Tværs II

In spring 2015 the Capital Region of Denmark and the municipalities in the metropolitan region agreed on a common energy vision. It was the culmination of the project Energi På Tværs, which continues to convert energy vision into an overall strategic energy plan for the entire region. Based on the politically recognized energy vision and partnership support, the new project will lead the first important step towards a common fossil-free energy future in the Capital Region.

This phase of Energi På Tværs must therefore ensure that the region, municipalities and companies stand with a common strategic energy plan in 2018. The goal is that the joint plan meets the vision of a low carbon energy system by 2035 and a low carbon transport system by 2050. The plan is a starting point for municipalities’ own strategic energy plans.

Energy visions are ambitious, and work on the strategic energy plans require a holistic and coordinated approach to planning, which takes on board, among other things, the technical and economic aspects of the conversion work. In order to create a common energy plan, the project will largely focus on the utilities’ investment projects and business cases to draw up a joint plan for conversion work, including an action plan for how each partner contributes to the work.
