When assessing the development trends in the climate and energy related fields, there is a need for data for a range of technologies. These data are collected in technology catalogues which are published regularly by the Danish Energy Agency and Energinet. The Technology Data are general values and specific investment decisions should not be based on these data.
The Technology Data features existing technologies, technologies in economic and technological development and technologies still at an experimental stage, though with emphasis on the first two categories.
With the Danish Energy Agency’s model for levelized cost of electricity (LcoE) it is possible to compare costs across different technologies.
The model can be found here:
The Technology Data are updated regularly in collaboration with external stakeholders. The method when updating the Technology Data is described here:
The Technology Data are separated into five different categories:
