key competences

Our climate consciousness and specialized staff

Our division constitutes a group of specialized staff with comprehensive experience in provision of professional technical advice and services to governmental organizations as well as private entities and enterprises that have a need or a special interest in services that can lead to a direct reduction in GHG emissions.

DEM was there from the beginning

Since its inception, DEM’s core competence has been within the energy sector. The company has provided technical services and consultancy for over 20 years on clean and efficient energy supply and on energy conservation and management at the end-user level.

So, even before climate change became one of the world’s most serious concerns, DEM promoted and contributed to a reduction of CO2 emissions through its services for energy savings and promotion of renewable energy sources .

At the international level, DEM has been involved in activities that contribute to global energy conservation for more than 15 years. The company’s list of references on energy includes more than 50 countries.

Soon after the first countries started to ratify the Kyoto Protocol, DEM started developing a strong capacity in providing quality services related to the implementation of the Protocol’s flexible mechanisms.

Strong regional expertise
Based on the company’s strong expertise in the South East Asian region (SEA), DEM has dominated the assistance of the Danish government’s efforts in supporting sustainable and high profile Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects in this region. Apart from the development of a large number of CDM projects in SEA, DEM is expanding its CDM capacity rapidly to China, India and several African countries.

DEM has been extensively involved in energy and environment related projects for over 10 years and has a permanent office in Bangkok. The company was deeply involved from the initial stage of CDM project development in Thailand and has since then played a major role in the development of the CDM market in Thailand by assisting in preparation, managing and implementing GHG reductions in Thailand. So far, DEM has developed more than 15 CDM projects in Thailand with estimated 2 million tons of Certified Emission Reduction credits.

DEM has for almost 10 years been present with an office in Kuala Lumpur, where the company develops all kinds of energy projects and where DEM was the first to get a Malaysian GHG reduction project approved internationally. In the CDM area, DEM is today assisting the Danish government in developing GHG reduction projects in Malaysia for a three-year period.

Furthermore, DEM cooperate with private companies in Denmark and Europe to develop Malaysian CDM projects. In total more than 15 CDM projects are now being managed in Malaysia by DEM with a potential to generate more than 2 million Certified Emission Reduction credits.

In Indonesia, DEM is currently involved in the 3 year Danish CDM programme, where DEM is identifying and developing sustainable CDM projects for the Danish government. The aim of the project is to extend the Danish CDM involvement in Indonesia and to introduce know-how as well as cleaner and more efficient technology to the country.

The important link between seller and buyer of Carbon Credits from High Profile CDM/JI projects
DEM can assist both CDM/JI project developers and Carbon Credit buyers. Having offices located in a large number of the countries where CDM and JI activities can be developed and implemented – DEM represents a strong partner for both seller and buyer.

To the “seller” DEM can provide experienced assistance regarding all developing stages – from the conceptualization of a potential CDM/JI project to the final registration with the UNFCCC.
To the “buyer” DEM is able to assist with specific Carbon Credit acquisitions and DEM can also assist the buyers in portfolio management, project monitoring and risk management – in order to ensure the agreed delivery of Certified Emission Reductions (CERs).
