Technology Data

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. The Technology Data are general values and specific investment decisions should not be based on these data.

The Technology Data shall be used for projects concerning collective heat supply (kollektiv varmeforsyning) if no project-specific data or corresponding documentation of comparable current projects can be obtained. This is described in more detail in the Guidance to socioeconomic analyses on energy. Find the guideline on the subpage of Socio-economic Assessments. 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: 

Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) Calculator

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 seven different categories:
