Bæredygtig Bundlinje - Fleet analyses

Assessments of  potentials for green transitions.

This report collects the results from 14 individual fleet analyses for the project Bæredygtig Bundlinje 1.0 (EN: Sustainable Bottom Line. The project had participation of small and medium-sized companies in the Capital Region of Denmark.

Each of the 14 companies received a report with the overall purpose of documenting each company’s potential to reduce their CO2 emissions and achieve economic savings in the transition to electric vehicles or bio CNG vehicles (biomethane). The report also consisted of an analysis of the green value creation in relation to their industry and operations, vehicle and infrastructure recommendations, and an action plan.

Combined, the 14 companies drive a total of almost 5 million km annually in all types and sizes of vehicles – from small passenger cars in elder care operations to the heaviest trucks in the logistics industry. 108 vehicles were recommended an electric car as an alternative, while for 118 vehicles were pointed to bio CNG.

In total, the 14 companies would be able to reduce CO2 emissions while driving by 918 tonnes per year and save approx. 6 million DKK over the estimated lifetime of the vehicles.

Biomethane for heavy duty transport

A cleaner and less expensive alternative with a great potential.

Fremsyn has prepared a series of three background reports for E.ON, HMN Naturgas, Nature Energy and DGD (Dansk Gas Distribution). The reports examine various aspects of the development of biogas gas for transport in Denmark.

  • Emissions from heavy duty transport – a comparison of biomethane and biodiesel.
  • Biomethane for transport in 2020 – 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.

This report summarises the background and main conclusions of the work on the three background reports.

Emissions from heavy duty transport

A comparison of biomethane and biodiesel.

This background report examines the effects of using biomethane as an alternative fuel for diesel and biodiesel in the heavy duty transport sector. The purpose of this background report is to examine greenhouse gas emissions and a number of environmental pollutants from the production and use of biomethane, diesel and biodiesel in heavy duty vehicles. The size and externality values of CO2, methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), SO2, NOX and particles are estimated in the main categories in a life cycle analysis.

Biogas for transport in 2020

Potential for deployment of biomethane for heavy duty transport.

This background report clarifies the conversion potential of biomethane in the heavy transport sector and assesses the possibility of 0.9 % target achievement for Denmark in 2020 with biomethane in heavy duty transport. Biomethane has a large unused potential to deliver on the fulfillment of the Danish obligations for conversion to renewable fuels. Within the next 10 years, it is possible to switch vehicles in the heavy duty transport sector corresponding to 10 % of the total Danish consumption of land transport fuel.

Advanced biofuels for heavy duty transport

Economic consequences of complying with biofuel blend obligations for biomethane, bioethanol and biodiesel

This background report analyses the socio-economic consequences in the period 2017 to 2030 by implementing the “Ren Energi” package proposal for blending requirements in Danish legislation. All results are presented in relation to a basic scenario, where Danish legislation continues as before, so that the consequences of the implementation appear clear. Three alternative scenarios are investigated, where three different types of fuels deliver the required target achievement from the “Ren Energi” package: Biomethane made from manure, advanced bioethanol made from straw and Fischer-Tropsch biodiesel from wood waste.

V2E (Vehichle-to-everything)

Analysis of the potential for electric vehicles to deliver electricity to tools and other equipment for professional use.

The V2E project has been completed between January 2016 to March 2017. The project has followed a highly successful implementation of V2E (Vehicle-to-Equipment) technology in electric vehicles in the Capital Region. Significant climate and environmental benefits have been documented, as well as a significant socioeconomic saving potential.

Public organisations can expect cost-effective environmental and climate benefits by including green innovation as a competitive parameter in public procurement. The project is funded by the Danish Energy Agency through the Elbil Execution Scheme, 7th grant round.

The project was funded by the Danish Energy Agency through Forsøgsordning for Elbiler, 7. tilskudsrunde (Electric Car Execution System, 7th grant round).

Electric Vehicles in the City

Experiment with charging opportunities for residentials in the cities.

From February 2014 to June 2016, the project Elbiler I Byen (Electric Vehicles in the City) provided charging to residents and public housing in a number of major Danish cities. Until December 2014, the project was called “Electric Vehicles for the Non Residential Use”. The project was carried out with the support of the Danish Energy Agency under the test scheme for electric and plug-in hybrid cars.
