    The Ecological Council, with the support of the Landowners' Investment, discussed the advantages and disadvantages of existing and future inclusion of renewable electricity to meet the energy frame for buildings. When the advantages and disadvantages of recognition possibility of renewable electricity weighed against each other, it suggests that a future BR20 should eliminate or significantly reduce the possibility of including electricity produced on the land register from the total energy requirement.

  • Energy Savings in SMEs

    Energy Savings in SMEs Only electronic

    Many larger enterprises have discovered that investments in energy efficiency have a fairly short payback time, and that energy savings offer both innovation and improved competitiveness.
    The energy saving efforts of small and medium-sized Danish enterprises (SMEs), however, still lag. These companies are very diverse and have different requirements for an energy saving effort and are generally too small to have expertise or focus on energy consumption.

    In this publication, The Danish Ecological Council takes a closer look at the issue on which initiatives to take to achieve more profitable energy savings in SMEs.

  • Climate Friendly Energy Solutions

    Climate Friendly Energy Solutions only electonic

    Recommendations for how small and large energy consumers can make a real effort to combat climate change – and how they can ensure more renewable energy.

    There has been identified a great need for recommendations for households, small medium and large companies and communities about what to do if you want to do something good for the climate and ensure the transition of especially the Danish energy sector for more renewables. Therefore, the Danish Ecological Council has written this publication that gives a clear overview of actions that you can do, and which actions you should avoid. This English edition has been supplemented to be used in the EU, and does contain explanations of special Danish conditions whenever needed.
