Denmark faces a massive transformation of its energy system. As the first nation in the world, Denmark has a goal of becoming independent of fossil fuels in 2050. This means that before 2020 Denmark will need to phase in 50 percent wind power in its electricity supply.
The natural answer to this great challenge is Smart Grid. Therefore, the Danish Energy Association, the industry association for the energy companies in Denmark, has taken the initiative to establish the Danish Intelligent Energy Alliance together with a large number of energy companies and companies in the energy industry.
A key task will be in fellowship with a wide range of companies and institutions in and around the energy sector to identify barriers and address the right conditions and environment for investments in new Smart Grid solutions.
The Danish Intelligent Energy Alliance was founded on 13th March 2012 at a Founding General Assembly in Copenhagen.
The aim of the Danish Intelligent Energy Alliance is to help Denmark get a position among the first countries to ensure an effective conversion of the power system to Smart Grid.
