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 and Energinet.dk.

The Technology Data are updated regularly.

At the moment five catalogues are available:

  • Production of Electricity and District Heating, Energy Storage and Energy Carrier Generation and Conversion
  • Updated Catalogue for Production of Electricity and District Heating – August 2016
  • Technology Data for Individual Heating Plants and Energy Transport 
  • Updated Catalogue for Individual Heating Plants – August 2016
  • Technology Data for Advanced Bioenergy Fuels

Technology Data for Generation of Electricity and District Heating, Energy Storage and Energy Carrier Generation and Conversion

This Technology Data catalogue includes technology data for a range of technologies for centralized and decentralized electricity and heat production for public energy supply. The catalogue also provides information on technologies for energy storage and technologies for energy production and conversion. Technology data concerns existing technologies, technologies undergoing technical and economic development, as well as experimental technologies.

There are currently two Technology Data catalogues - one older from May 2012, with latest updates in 2015, and a new catalogue from August 2016, with latest updates in June 2017 on offshore Wind.

The two catalogues are available through the following links:

Updated data sheets in Excel for each technology are available below: 

Note for updating of technical and financial data for large ground mounted solar PV plants July 2017 (in Danish) 

Note for updating of financial data for offshore wind turbines, June 2017 – external comments incorporated (in Danish)

Note for updating of financial data for coal CHP and DH boilers, May 2017 – external comments incorporated

Energy technology catalogue chapters for the biomass and waste PP, CHP and DH-boilers  with related data tables in external review until t 22 2017

Technology Data for Individual Heating Plants and Energy Transport

The Technology Data Catalogue includes data for a number of technologies for individual heating and data for the district heating grid and electricity grid. Technology data concerns existing technologies and new technologies under development.

The entire technology catalogue was updated in May 2012  and in October 2013 a new version with updated chapters was published. Furthermore an updated catalogue for Individuel Heating was published in August 2016 this catalogue has been updated December 2017. The catalogues are available through the following links:   

Updated catalogue for Individual Heating 2016 - Updated December 2017

Updated data sheets in excel for each technology are to be found below: 

Updated Data Sheets for Individual Heating Plants 2016 - Updated December 2017

Technology Data for Advanced Bioenergy Fuels

This technology catalogue contains data for a number of technologies to convert biomass to liquid biofuels. The catalog covers both existing technologies and new technologies under development.

The catalogue is developed by FORCE Technology on behalf of the Danish Energy Agency and published in 2013.

The catalogue and data sheets are available through the following links:

In June 2017 new chapters on biogas plants and biogas upgrading have been published: 

Technology Data for energy carrier generation and conversion
Data Sheets for energy carrier generation and conversion

The chapters replace the corresponding chapters in the catalog for Technology Data for Energy Plants  - May 2012.
