In the last years, Danish Energy Management had performed over 100 projects. Somes of the latest ones are mentioned below and most of them are on-going assignments or projects recently implemented.

Project Title: Uganda: Energy for Rural Transformation Project: Implementation of a Monitoring and Evaluation Plan for Energy for Rural Transformation Program
Country: Uganda
Project Dates: 2006 – 2008
Funding Agency / Client: World Bank / Government of the Republic of Uganda
Lead Firm: Danish Energy Management A/S
Project Budget: EUR 623,400
Project Description:

The Government of the Republic of Uganda has received a credit from the International Development Association (IDA) towards the cost of implementing the Energy for Rural Transformation (ERT) Project, and intends to apply part of the proceeds of this credit to payments under the Contract for provision of Consultancy services.

The objective of this consultancy is, based on preliminary monitoring and evaluation work already carried out to develop survey instruments, to implement a monitoring and evaluation (M&E) program for the ERT program in Uganda. The monitoring and evaluation program will provide baseline information on the status of some communities before the implementation of the energy programs, and monitor the full impact of the program as it develops.

The aim of this M&E program is to establish the effectiveness of the rural transformation approach of the ERT program, i.e., the extent to which the ERT program has been successful in improving the quality of rural life and increasing rural non-farm incomes.

Project Title: Technical assistance for the Energy / Environment Programme
Country: China
Project Dates: 2003 – 2008
Funding Agency / Client: European Commission / EuropeAid
Lead Firm: Danish Energy Management A/S
Project Budget: EUR 2,900,000
Project Description:

A Programme Management Unit (PMU) has been established in Beijing and from there the project and all its activities is managed, with the overall objective to improve the environment in China, promote a more sustainable use of energy, improve energy efficiency, promote an increased use of renewable energies and support the development of the natural gas market.

The target groups are the Chinese energy users: industrial, residential and commercial and public services. The intermediate target groups are national administrations and local authorities in charge of energy policies and implementation, research institutes and associations of energy stakeholders.

The PMU prepares the Call for Tender including the TOR and guidelines for project implementation. The PMU procures short and long-term specialist technical personnel recruiting them according to the approved TOR and is responsible for coordination of the experts and contractors. In addition; it also designs and implements the policy advice, awareness training and technology activities of the project.

In general, the PMU coordinates with the EC, the Executing Authority, the PSC, all implementing agencies as well as with relevant donor and governmental bodies.

Project Title: Technical Assistance to EVN’s DSM Cell in the Implementation of the Phase 2 DSM Program
Country: Vietnam
Project Dates: 2004 – 2007
Funding Agency / Client: World Bank / Electricity of Vietnam (EVN)
Lead Firm: Danish Energy Management A/S
Project Budget: EUR 600,000
Project Description:
The objective of this project is to ensure the successful development of EVN’s DSM Cell, along with concrete achievement of load and cost reduction targets assigned by EVN to the DSM Phase 2 Program.

Danish Energy Management will be assisting in developing enhanced capabilities in the DSM Cell and preparing specifications for the procurement of the equipment and required TORs for the consulting services required. Besides, Danish Energy Management will participate in the development of the programme implementation plans and in the coordination of the programme implementation.

Project Title: EC-ASEAN Energy Facility – Project Management Unit
Country: ASEAN countries
Project Dates:  2002 – 2007
Funding Agency / Client: European Commission
Lead Firm: Danish Energy Management A/S
Project Budget: EUR 1,950,000
Project Description:The programme assisted by Danish Energy Management will stimulate regional energy projects and initiatives proposed by the energy industry, either public or private, from the European Union and from ASEAN.

The programme will co-finance groups of EU and ASEAN energy actors for the implementation of consistent projects which have a regional ASEAN dimension and which also clearly have a real European “added value”, i.e. featuring the diversity of the European experience in terms of institutional or technological options.

The programme will centre on four different facilities, which will be available for co-financing activities such as information exchange, training, provision of technical expertise and demonstration of proven European technology. In addition, the programme will comprise institutional strengthening activities to maximise the overall long-term impact of the programme.

Project Title: Enhancement of Use of Local and Renewable Energy Resources in Lithuania / Support to Implement the Government Decision on Renewables in View of the EU Acquis / Follow up Activities on National Plan for Renewable Energy
Country: Lithuania
Project Dates: 2002-2003; 2003 -2004; 2004-2005
Funding Agency / Client: Danish Energy Authority / Lithuanian Energy Agency
Lead Firm: Danish Energy Management A/S
Project Budget: EUR 337,000 / EUR 120,600 / EUR 41,400  totalling to EUR 498,400
Project Description:
The project started out with a collection of information on already implemented renewable energy projects in Lithuania, and an assessment of these in order to describe best performances. This was an ongoing dynamic process. Based on an assessment of the situation, Danish Energy Management defined some realistic targets. Further a detailed plan for how to reach these targets was elaborated and presented together with an assessment of the consequences of the different recommended measures.

The project provided examples of all relevant documents in relation to proposed changes in existing legislation. Finally, Danish Energy Management identified all obstacles for an enhancement of the utilization of renewable energy resources and proposed changes to overcome these obstacles.

Later on, the following project aimed to support the Lithuanian government in the practical implementation of the EU acquis on renewable energy, and especially the two directives 2001/77/EC on the promotion of electricity produced from renewable energy sources in the internal energy market, and 2003/30/EC of 8 May on the promotion of the use of biofuels or other renewable fuels for transport. Danish Energy Management assisted in drafting the legislation and provisions according to the EU acquis.

In 2004/05 Danish Energy Management assisted in the enhancement of knowledge and dissemination of information on renewables, including a more precise knowledge of the potential for renewable and indigenous energy resources. One of the most important results of the project was the plan for a gradual introduction of a Green Certificate system in Lithuania.

Project Title: EC-ASEAN COGEN Programme Phase III (COGEN3)
Country: ASEAN coutntries
Project Dates: 2002-2004
Funding Agency / Client: European Commission
Lead Firm: Danish Energy Management A/S
Project Budget: EUR 840,000
Project Description:The EC-ASEAN COGEN Programme is a three-year economic co-operation initiated by the European Commission (EC) and the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN). It is funded by the European Commission with at total contribution of app. EUR 23,500,000. The programme is co-ordinated in ASEAN by the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Bangkok, Thailand.

The objective of COGEN 3 is to promote and create business opportunities for the use of co-generation to generate power and heat using biomass, coal or gas as fuel. This will be achieved through partnerships between ASEAN industries and power producers and European equipment suppliers and a grant programme for implementation of Full Scale Demonstration Project (FSDP). FSDPs are implementation of proven technology on a full scale basis in order to demonstrate its technical reliability, economic viability, and environmental friendliness. A FSDP is a showcase in ASEAN aiming to convince other potential end-users to select the appropriate technology in order to replicate successes.

COGEN 3 acts as a facilitator serving the cogeneration market in South East Asia, in defining and matchmaking appropriate technology supplied by European Equipment Suppliers to ASEAN end-users. In addition, Danish Energy Management assisted throughout the process to ensure smooth implementation of the projects.
