Renewable Energy

Within our world – creating sustainable growth within the limits of our planet

In contrast to other energy sources that are concentrated to a few countries, renewable energy resources are available much more widely and in areas where energy access is scarce. The deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions improves energy security, climate change mitigation and has economic benefits.  In international public opinion surveys, there is a strong support for promoting renewable sources such as solar and the wind and hydro power.  At the national level, in at least 30 nations around the world, renewable energy contribute to more than 20 percent of the energy supply. National renewable energy markets are projected to continue to grow strongly in the coming decade and beyond.

The great challenge faced by developed and developing economies is to integrate environmental sustainability with economic growth and welfare. This can be achieved by decoupling environmental degradation from economic growth. Sustainable growth is typically one of the key objectives not only in development cooperation, but also in national policies. Rapid urbanisation, climate change and the growing demand for energy and resources are challenging this objective. While many renewable energy projects are large-scale, renewable technologies are also suited to rural and remote areas and developing countries, where energy is often crucial in human development. In fact, in order to meet the Sustainable Energy For All (SE4ALL) goal of achieving universal energy access by 2030, off-grid renewable energy solutions are vital.

We offer:

Danish Energy Management & Esbensen has provided advisory services to numerous governments and institutions around the world in incorporating renewable energy as a core component of their national energy strategy.

Danish Energy Management & Esbensen provide detailed analysis of viable options available in the local context and recommendations for broader reforms that will encourage renewable energy supply, based on a thorough understanding of global best practice and supplemented by quantitative analysis that makes use of tested, multi-faceted databases and energy modelling tools.

We focus on four core renewable energy technologies:

Solar (PV and thermal), the wind, hydro, biomass

Danish Energy Management & Esbensen provide tailored technical solutions based on the most up-to-date knowledge and innovations:

  • Technology advice – analysis, optimisation and documentation of possible designs and configurations of system in a given situation, using the newest data and relevant tools; general consultancy including choice of technology, type, plant scale/capacity and installation, location/ orientation, functionality, management systems, etc.;
  • Financial advice – cost-benefit analysis, assessment of return on investment and complete feasibility studies;
  • Implementation support – preparation of procurement materials and specifications; technical dimensioning and planning (including transmission and distribution networks).
“The Armenian RE Roadmap, examines the extent to which national targets are justified if the technically exploitable potentials located in Armenia are developed and utilized. A realistic target, based on the implementation of the RE Roadmap, is to triple energy production from RE sources by 2020. Today RE production generates 332 mln kWh and is forecasted to generate 671 mln kWh in 2015 and 923 mln kWh in 2020.”
