Promoting Electric Mobility Europe
PRO EME (Promoting Electric Mobility Europe) aims to promote electric vehicles across Europe by developing tools and disseminating knowledge to potential end-users and by creating dialogue between market and lawmakers both regionally, nationally and European.
The project has Danish participation by Copenhagen Electric, the regional EV secretariat in the Capital Region, which Fremsyn in collaboration with LWTS Consulting 2016 has contributed with task solutions to. The tasks have consisted of:
– Project management and communication plan for the project
– Contribution to European TCO vehicle comparison
– Enrolment and analysis of questionnaire survey with 1,500 Danish respondents
– Collection and analysis of national framework conditions and incentives for the purchase and use of electric cars in five European countries
– Case stories with interviews of electric car owners in private households, private companies and public organizations.
The PRO EME working group consists of partners from the following seven countries:
PRO EME is one of several European projects under the EME (Electric Mobility Europe) umbrella, which is supported under the Horizon 2020 program ERA-NET.

Bæredygtig Bundlinje 1.0
Fleet analyses for 14 SMEs in the Capital Region of Denmark
From April to October 2018, Fremsyn delivered fleet analyses for 14 small and medium-sized companies in the Capital Region of Denmark through the project Bæredygtig Bundlinje (EN: Sustainable Bottom Line). Fremsyn also participated in the project’s closing conference in March 2019 with a presentation on the future and the framework conditions for green transition in the transport sector.
At project start, the 14 companies operated 239 vehicles. Some companies planned to scale up or down in numbers, and some vehicles were already running on a green alternative. 226 vehicles therefore became the total for green recommendations. Electricity and/or biomethane (bio CNG) was recommended for the green transition – mainly electricity for passenger cars and small vans and biomethane for the heavier transport. Electric cars were recommended in 108 cases, while bio CNG was recommended in 118 cases.
The summarising report can be read under Publications.
Bæredygtig Bundlinje 1.0 had a total of approx. 100 companies in the Capital Region based on the UN’s 17 world goals. In addition to Fremsyn’s potential assessments of selected companies’ fleets, the companies could, among other things, receive advice on energy checks, packaging handling and eco-labels.
The project is supported and co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the Capital Region of Denmark, Greater Copenhagen and the Growth Forum of the Capital Region.
Counseling farmers with biogas plant projects.
Based on thorough processing of data and knowledge, Gas Vitae provides consultancy work for a larger number of current and future biogas plants in Denmark. The biogas plants are established by farmer groups, and Gas Vitae facilitates their construction projects throughout the process from start to finish with financing, establishment and optimal operation with a model that gives the farmers 100 % ownership of their biogas plant.
Every future biogas plant has been drafted a business prospect by Gas Vitae, where all aspects of the establishment and operation of the biogas plant are gathered to potential financing partners with:
– Authorities approvals
– Biomass plans
– Gas production
The owner groups in the biogas plants have given Gas Vitae a mandate to negotiate agreements in place with potential financing partners and advise the building owners along the way.
Gas Vitae is established and operated in collaboration between Fremsyn and AgroFora. Contact us to hear about your possibilities for establishing a biogas plant.

BioManS is an analysis and optimisation tool for production in biogas plants
BioManS is an abbreviation for Biomass Management System, which aims to help biogas plants with reports to the authorities, and to predict and optimise the production of biogas. The platform gives biogas plants an easy and manageable tool for reporting and sending biomass inventories, and BioManS also analyses the potential for the production and the market.
Specifically, BioManS helps with the following:
– Biomass inventory: BioManS helps biogas plants with reporting of biomass inventories to Energinet.dk. In order for biogas plants that are not joint plants to obtain support, a form must be submitted once a year. The form must specify the types of biomass that have been used to produce biogas at the biogas plant, etc.
– Supplier register: BioManS prepares reporting to the supplier register for joint biogas plants. Reporting is a requirement for a joint biogas plant that receives operating aid. Once a year, the quantity of received, sold and allocated biomasses must be reported to the Danish Agriculture Agency under the Ministry of the Environment and Food.
– Digestion performance: Get checked whether your biogas plant utilises the biomass optimally so that the plant’s capacity is fully utilised.
– Sustainability certification: BioManS helps biogas plants with documentation for certification schemes for sustainable biogas with higher sales price as a result.
BioManS is developed and operated in collaboration between Fremsyn and MSB Information Security with support from the Green Investment Fund.

The Interest Association for Biomethane in Transportation
Econimic, climate and environmental effects of using biomethane for transport purposes.
With this project, Fremsyn has worked to promote the framework conditions for biomethane for transport via analyses, meetings and presentations for relevant stakeholders.
In a series of four reports, we present the economic and environmental consequences of three scenarios of different biofuels for the potential conversion of the heavy transport in Denmark. The purpose of the report series is to illustrate the best solution for Denmark’s climate commitments in 2020 up to 2030 with alternative biofuels.
The Interest Association for Biomethane in Transportation consists of E.ON, HMN Naturgas, NGF Nature Energy and DGD (Dansk Gas Distribution). The report series can be read under Publications and consists of:
– Biomethane for heavy transport – a cleaner and cheaper alternative with great potential.
– Emissions from heavy duty transport – a comparison of biomethane and biodiesel.
– Biomethane for transport in 2020 – the potential for enrolment of biomethane for heavy duty transport.
– Advanced biofuels for heavy duty transport – financial consequences of target achievement from biomethane, bioethanol and biodiesel.
DAKOFA has written an article on the interest association and Fremsyn’s work on the reports. Read here (Danish).

Potential assessments and analysis of electric vehicles with an extra LPS battery for tools and other equipment.
The V2E project ran from January 2016 to March 2017. The project has followed a very successful implementation of V2E technology in electric vans in the Capital Region of Denmark.
A large part of the cars that daily drive around in large parts of the Capital Region are vans for craftsmen and light service trades. Conversion of these vehicles to electric power represents a great potential for reducing emissions of noise, greenhouse gases and air pollution in cities. The V2E project defines the potential of electric cars to deliver power to tools and equipment.
Significant climate and environmental gains have been documented, as well as a significant corporate financial saving potential. Public organizations can expect cost-effective environmental and climate gains by including green innovation as a competitive parameter in public procurement.
The report can be read here.
V2E is part of a comprehensive pallet for terminology within V2X, which covers a comprehensive term for utilisation and use of electric vehicle battery capacity. The following categories are defined:
– V2X = vehicle-to-everything.
– V2G = vehicle-to-grid.
– V2H = vehicle-to-home.
– V2V = vehicle-to-vehicle
– V2L = vehicle-to-load.
– V2E (vehicle-to-equipment) is a custom subcategory for V2L established in connection with this project.
The project was carried out by Fremsyn in co-operation with Copenhagen Electric at the Capital Region of Denmark and financed by the Danish Energy Agency via the pilot scheme for electric cars, the 7th grant round.

Electric Vehicles in the City
Experiment with charging opportunities for residentials in the cities.
The project Electric Vehicles in the City has tested a business concept that will make it more attractive for car owners in dense residential buildings to choose an electric vehicle.
Charging conditions are often considered one of the biggest problems for electric car owners in areas with apartments without access to a private parking spot. Conventional cars rarely need to be fueled and can handle it quickly and easily through a well-developed infrastructure. In contrast, electric cars need security for a parking spot with charging near the home, so that an electric car can operate in a regular usage pattern with daily runs to and from work, shopping and leisure activities.
The concept gives the electric car drivers access to a reserved parking spot with charging at attractive prices for semi-public charging stations at apartments. In the concept, the charging operator offers attractive terms and prices for installation and own consumption, against the charging station being partially publicly available. The project achieved great satisfaction among the users and included 33 charging stations across the country.
The report can be read here.
From February 2014 to June 2016, the project provided charging for residents and the public in apartments in a number of major Danish cities and was carried out with the support of the Danish Energy Agency under the Experimental scheme for Electric and Plug-in Hybrid Cars.
