COWI has 30 years of experience with long-term energy master planning as well as project specific feasibility studies. COWI assists national and region management as well as utilities with developing energy plans.

Energy is an important part of the infrastructure in industrialised countries, and many people and organisations are dependent on and influenced by energy supply structures.

COWI is an active player when it comes to development of energy sectors, that need to meet future demands for financial and environmental sustainability.

Energy planning for handling changesWe offer a broad range of energy planning services that help our clients recognise and follow-up on changes and limit risks of unacceptable consequences, as both long-term perspectives and short-term facts are taken into consideration.

The services offered by COWI typically include evaluation of existing and future energy demands and technical and economic analyses of energy systems. This may have to do with individual buildings, industries, local district heating systems, and energy supply systems at both national and international level.

On the basis of these analyses, strategies and practical solutions for the improvement and development of energy systems are prepared and implemented in close co-operation with our clients.

Energy planning creates knowledge, order and transparency. Thus it helps decision makers (both politicians and enterprises) influence development and document their decisions. This, in turn, creates reliability between decision makers, citizens and energy consumers.

Project identification, design and financing
We have in-house technical expertise relevant to JI and CDM projects. Therefore, we can assist with the identification, design, structuring and appraisal of JI and CDM projects.

We handle the project development, screening of projects, project design documents (PDD), baseline studies, the monitoring of implementation plans, environmental assessments, agreements and contracts and financial analyses and structuring.

Analyses of complex power systemsPower system analysis is an important tool for evaluating the future development and needed investments in the electricity sector.

COWI can assist power companies, national authorities and decision makers with preparing analyses of large and complex power systems.

The quantitative analyses are carried out by the help of modelling tools. COWI has specific experience with using and modifying the Balmorel model, which covers the Nordic and Baltic power systems.

Other types of power sector analyses can be of a more qualitative and non-technical nature. This type of analysis may, for instance, focus on the functioning of the electricity market.
