FORSK2025 – the coming strategy for strategic research in Denmark

2. May 2016

Denmark is going to identify important research areas to create the highest benefit for the Danish society. The Danish government has thus asked The Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science to make a strategy for strategic research ‘FORSK2025’. The acting body is the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation.

As a partner member of ATV (The Danish Academy of Technical Sciences)  and DI (Confederation of Danish Industry), Danish Power Systems (DPS) has been asked to take part in this process. DPS will deliver input through our organizations, and we will obviously focus on more research, development and demonstration on new energy technologies, the core of DPS’ business, but also areas where Denmark plays a leading role in the world.

Free conference on PEM Fuel Cells in Korea

7. November 2013

Both Korea and Denmark have strong communities for research, development and early commercialization of PEM fuel cells, and both countries are worldwide recognized for their pronounced efforts to promote new energy technologies of which fuel cells constitute an important field with high expectations. This has led to fruitful and growing cooperation between the Korean and the Danish fuel cell communities and now the joint Danish Korean PEM Fuel Cell Workshop in Seoul, November 18-19, 2013, organized by DTU Energy Conversion, Danish Power System and Korean Institute of Science and Technology. The scope of this bilateral PEM fuel cell workshop is to bring together scientists and business developers from the two countries in a two day event in Seoul - to get updated, to make new contacts or to strengthen and widen the networks already established. Common challenges are best met in common and the markets of today are global, and the climate challenge has made the need for accelerated development of improved energy technologies even stronger. Besides, commercial niche applications for which PEM fuel cells show a competing edge are emerging, and the workshop is also a fine opportunity for the companies in the market to meet the scientists.

Danish Korean PEM Fuel Cell Workshop, Seoul, November 18-19, 2013

6. September 2013

DPS is together with DTU Energy Conversion, KIST and Sanqmyung University organizing a workshop on fuel cells. The purpose is to expand the collaboration between the companies, institutions and universities in the two countries.

In both Korea and Denmark there are strong communities for research, development and early commercialization of PEM fuel cells. Both countries are recognized for their pronounced efforts to promote new energy technologies of which fuel cells constitute an important field with high expectations. The climate challenge has made the need for accelerated development of improved energy technologies even stronger. Besides, niche applications for which PEM fuel cells show a competing edge also from a commercial perspective are already emerging.

Some initial contacts between members of the Korean and the Danish fuel cell communities are seen in line with the overall interest for collaboration between the two countries in the fields of green technology, exemplified by the Green Growth Alliance and last spring by the Danish business delegation headed by the Danish Crown Prince Couple.

The scope of this bilateral PEM fuel cell workshop is to bring together scientists and business developers from the two countries in a two day event in Seoul - to get updated, to make new contacts or to strengthen and widen the networks already established. Common challenges are best met in common and the markets of today are global.

The workshop is financed by a grant from International Network Program of Danish Agency for Science Technology and Innovation.

The workshop is also supported by the Embassy of Denmark in Seoul.

Press release - Joint production project

29th of September 2011

Danish Power Systems (DPS) is making a joint effort with Risø DTU and SP Group to develop production technology for fuel cells. That DPS has come this far is related to the valuable funding that has been recieved from Energinet.dk and The Danish Energy Agency (Energistyrelsen) through their EUDP program. 

Risø DTU is also funded from the EUDP program for the development of solar celles based on polymers. The collaboration between these two different EUDP projects - fuel cells and solar cells - means additional and unforeseen value of the EUDP funding spent within these two areas. Risø DTU will achieve additional utilization of the equipment and DPS will gain quick access to improved production technology.

However, the most interesting aspect is, that DPS will take another step towards lower cost and improved production quality. This helps to mature the technology and facilitates commercialisation, which is expected happen in larger scale already from 2015.

The HTPEM fuel cells DPS is producing will help to reduce dependency of fossil fuels for economic, national and strategic benefit, facilitate increased national industrial competitiveness and deliver clear environmental benefits.

Konference Invitation

May 2011:

Det er med stor fornøjelse, at Partnerskabet for brint og brændselsceller i samarbejde med Det Strategiske Forskningsråd, hermed kan invitere til konferencen ’Brændselsceller – Værdikæden fra forskning til marked’.

I Danmark er der inden for energiområdet flere forskellige offentlige støtteprogrammer til fordel for energiteknologisk udvikling. Disse har hver for sig de seneste år fået mere og mere såvel specifikke som særskilte fokusområder inden for værdikæden fra forskning til marked. En sådan udvikling fordrer samtidigt i stigende grad koordinering og samordning af ordningerne for at sikre sammenhæng i værdikæden.

Konferencen sætter på baggrund af den teknologiske udvikling inden for brint og brændselsceller fokus på udfordringen hermed. Dette sker ved først at præsentere status samt fremtidsperspektiver for de enkelte teknologier. Herefter behandles branchens nationale strategier og deres udformning samt betydning. Eftermiddagen byder på en diskussion om fremtiden for brint og brændselsceller samt hvordan markedet nås.

Konferencen finder sted tirsdag den 7. juni 2011 kl. 9 – 17 i Tivoli Hotel and Congress Center.

Blandt dagens talere er først Videnskabsminister Charlotte Sahl-Madsen. Efter ministeren følger en spændende række af indlæg fra både industrien, forskningsverdenen samt myndigheder.

Program for dagen

Tilmelding til konferencen foregår her.

Der vil være et deltagergebyr på 750 kr. og der er 100 pladser til konferencen, som fordeles efter først til mølle.
