Compass Lexecon Advises Wien Energie on Decarbonisation Scenarios for Vienna’s Energy System
Compass Lexecon provided energy economic and modelling support to the municipal energy utility of Vienna to develop scenarios for decarbonising the Viennese energy system. Particular focus was put on decarbonising district heating. The scenarios, illustrate a path for Vienna to achieve full decarbonisation by 2040.
Compass Lexecon advises SITRA on cost-efficient electrification in Finland
Compass Lexecon advised innovation fund, Sitra, on an approach to achieve the Finnish decarbonisation targets as smoothly and cost-efficiently as possible. Based on quantitative energy and power system modelling and qualitative engagement with key stakeholders across the Finnish community, we delivered a holistic study on the cost-efficient decarbonisation pathway for Finland up until 2050.
Decarbonisation of the Nordics
Copenhagen Economics was asked to identify key results which a successful decarbonisation strategy needs to deliver on and further to propose a set of political initiatives for reaching the Nordic country’s decarbonisation targets.
Integrating solar, storage, and EV charging
By aligning EV charging behaviour with new local, renewable generation, there is an opportunity to accelerate the decarbonisation of the overall electricity system and meet new EV charging requirements, all while avoiding stress on the low-voltage grid.
Pioneering the green energy transition in Ukraine
DTEK Renewables, a subsidiary of the DTEK Group, the largest private sector energy company in Ukraine, is at the forefront of implementing the green energy transition in Ukraine. As of 2020, over 1 GW of installed RES capacity has been constructed by DTEK while € 1.2 billion has been spent on the construction of solar and wind power plants.
Construction of the energy storage system
In 2020-2021 DTEK plans to build the 1/1,5 MWh energy storage system (ESS) at Zaporizhzhya Coal-Fired Power Plant. This is a first grid-scale storage system in Ukraine - a pilot project to find the best use cases of storage systems on the Ukrainian market. Being the largest private national investor in the Ukrainian energy sector DTEK sees this project as a contribution to the energy independence and decarbonization of Ukraine.
