Sustainable Use of Energy Carriers in the Kattegat / Skagerrak (KASK) Region

This project aims to study how improving energy efficiency and large scale integration of renewable energy can contribute to economic and environmental sustainable development of the Kattegat-Skagerrak region (KASK).

Detailed studies of how to improve energy efficiency in key industries and in existing building structure will be performed. Additionally a study of integration of wind / renewable energy into the existing energy net will be made.

Possible development routes will be studied with today's energy situation as starting point to show how the energy system in the region can be designed towards a more sustainable system in short (2020), medium (2030) and long term (2050).

The project is split in four different work packages:

  1. Database generation of energy systems in the region and the establishment of a reference energy system for the region.
  2. In depth energy analysis of the regions energy system in three areas.
  3. Identification of proposals for a more efficient and sustainable energy system and detailed studies in three selected fields.
  4. Internal and external communication.
