As the three Nordic flagship projects come to a close they will be presenting their results at various conferences and events across the Nordic and Baltic regions. The projects each address a major challenge for achieving a carbon-neutral Nordic region:

 

  • Flex4RES: How to ensure flexibility in the energy system
  • NegativeCO2: Technology for capturing CO2 in combustion of biomass
  • Shift: Solutions for urban mobility and for long distance/heavy duty transport

Below is an overview of the “Nordic Flagship Tour.”


Delivering a Carbon-Free Nordic Energy System in 2050 – Outcomes of the Flex4RES Nordic Flagship Project

16. September, Helsinki

This event, led by Professor Peter Lund, and featuring top international experts, will present the results of the Nordic flagship Flex4RES project, which focused on the challenge of how to integrate high shares of variable renewable energy across the Nordic region.

The project demonstrates that this challenge can be handled through a stronger coupling of energy markets across the Nordic region, thus facilitating a zero-carbon energy transition.

Flexibility as enabler for a carbon neutral energy system in the Nordics (Flex4RES)

24. September, Tallin

This event will mark the final milestone of the Flex4RES project and provides a forum for the presentation of the final results and outputs of the project. It will be a further opportunity to continue the exchange and discussions with key stakeholders around the topic of flexibility in a carbon neutral Nordic energy system.

Further details and registration here.


The road to a flexible and climate neutral Nordic energy system – Breakfast seminar (Flex4RES)

24. September, Oslo

How to decarbonize the Nordic energy sector by 2034-2040? How can the Nordics be a driving force? What are the implications of flexibility? And will people accept more windmills and electric wires?

Main organizer: Energi Norge (Energy Norway)

Flexibility as enabler for a carbon neutral energy system in the Nordics (Flex4RES)

30. September, Copenhagen

This event will mark the final milestone of the Flex4RES project and provides a forum for the presentation of the final results and outputs of the project with further special insights from Energistyrelsen. It will be an opportunity to continue the exchange and discussions with key stakeholders around the topic of flexibility in a carbon neutral Nordic energy system.

C40 World Mayor Summit (Shift)

9. October, Copenhagen

Cities will require mobility solutions that are sustainable, affordable, secure and inclusive, and integrated with customer-centric infrastructure and services. This transformation rests on the twin pillars of mobility and energy, which both will require radical adaptation to meet demographic and a low carbon economy without increasing congestion and pollution.

The DTU International Energy Report 2019 will be launched during the summit, with focus on sustainable mobility and transport systems in cities, alternative fuels and active transport models, among other transport related issues. The program will include presentations of the report, international keynote speakers from C40 and big cities. From NEF’s Shift flagship project, Raffaele Salvucci from DTU will present “Global outlook on the transport sector”.

The automotive industry is changing: How can we meet the biggest social challenges? (Shift)

16. October, Göteborg

What does the industry need to do now and in the future? How do we work smarter and faster? At this automotive conference, we discuss the most important trends and take the opportunity to be inspired by projects that actively contribute to the change that the automotive industry needs to make.

The conference focuses on issues and trends that have an impact on the industry.

Baltic Carbon Forum BCF2019 (Negative CO2)

22.-23. October, Tallin

The aim of the conference is to share the latest knowledge on CCS technologies andperspectives for CCUS. In addition to Nordic and Baltic research institutions and companies, a broader view on the matter is presented by the Global CCS Institute.

Main organizer: BASRECCS.

High Tech Summit (Flex4RES)

30.-31. October, Copenhagen

The session focus on dilemmas regarding using “big data” in cities:

On the one hand there is a huge potential for improving management of energy and welfare. On the other hand, there are concerns for protection of the individuals and securing privacy energy efficiency and benefits for the climate.

Based upon the Flex4RES research on energy efficiency there will be presented reflections on this dilemma.

Nordic Bioenergy Conference (Shift) 

4.-6. November, Goteborg

“Building a Sustainable European Biofuel Industry”

Bio4Fuels Days 2019 will gather key actors to address the main objective of sustainable biofuel implementation prospects in Norway, Sweden and the UK.

Can the Nordics become CO2 negative by 2040? The role of biomass. This is one of the presentations at the conference, based upon research on Nordic studies of transport, flexibility in heat and power systems, and on bio-based carbon capture. Kenneth Karlson.

6th of November after lunch: Workshops on sustainable biofuels – time to discuss!

Track A: industry and end users

Track B: sustainability throughout the value chain
