With a current average of 53% RES in the Danish grid, Denmark is a frontrunner within the design and implementation of a smart grid. The vast amount of RES in the grid is possible due to the interconnectivity of the electrical system, gas system and district heating system. New technologies for measuring, remotely controlling, automatic responses and communication equipment are being introduced to optimize and run the energy system.
The Danish smart grid developments are linked to the green transportation agenda. As a country being the playing ground for many new technologies, we have a nation-wide fueling infrastructure for hydrogen cars, EVs and natural gas cars. Further, the maritime sector is moving into to green fuels at an increasing pace bringing forth opportunities for using liquid green fuels or green gasses to fuel the ferries and larger vessels.
Electric transport has developed rapidly in the Netherlands. As a result, the Netherlands is currently the international frontrunner as regards electric vehicles, including buses and heavier means of transport, and the infrastructure for them.
Key data :
In 2015, the Netherlands occupied 2nd place in the global EV fleet (BEV and PHEV) rankings for market share.
A large number of municipalities, urban and metropolitan regions and provinces have invested substantially in the development of electric transport in recent years.
Germany set the goal of becoming the lead market and provider for electric mobility by 2020.
Key Data :
The German Federal Government would like to achieve one million electric cars on German roads by 2020 as part of its “National Electromobility Development Plan.
No other automotive nation can boast a comparable range and diversity of vehicle including BEV, PHEV and REEV models.
The passing of “Electro-mobility Law” in 2014 has given electric vehicle owners an advantaged and provided further impetus to the country’s electric mobility revolution
The French Alternative and Atomic Energies Commission (CEA) is a key player in research,
development and innovation in four main areas: defense and security, nuclear and
renewable energies, technological research for industry, fundamental research in physical
and life sciences.
