The Triangle Region of Denmark consists of seven municipalities: Billund, Fredericia, Haderselv, Kolding, Middelfart, Vejen and Vejle. A new corporate alliance, the Triangle Energy Alliance (TEA), aims to turn the area into Northern Europe’s green fuel production hub, and a clean energy and sustainable transportation powerhouse.
The TEA consists of 13 major companies in the energy and transport sector, including COWI, and the seven Triangle Region municipalities. The main focus of the alliance is establishing industrial scale Power-to-X (PtX) facilities, and using renewable energy to create green hydrogen, and subsequently green fuels such as ammonia and methanol. First on the agenda is establishing full-scale PtX plants within the next 5 years.
By working closely together, and linking energy flows and consumption across the entire Triangle Region, it is estimated the costs of producing green hydrogen could be reduced by up to 20 percent. COWI is a keen member of the TEA partnership, and has, among other things, produced a study on the possibilities of connecting a PtX system at the Skærbæk power plant to the Triangle Region’s Heat Transmission Company I/S.
