The transport sector is the major challenge in establishing a Denmark independent of fossil fuels. As the fossil fuels are phased out, the transport sector must be increasingly integrated in the rest of the energy system. Electric vehicles are charged and may supply the electric-grid, in the production of biofuels electricity and heat is used, while waste heat from production can be used for district heating and finally hydrogen can be a new storage medium. The transport sector will also have to compete with other sectors for biomass and other limited resources. The Danish Energy Agency’s new energy model (TIMES-DK) and the national transport model (LTM) developed by the DTU Transport will be combined in the framework of this project, creating a new tool for the analysis of integrating the transport sector in the energy system. A tool beyond state of art, which can analyse how the transport sector influence the overall energy system in much greater detail and variety, and include assessments of the impact of infrastructure investments and modal shift. Public hearings and interactive stakeholder involvement will secure that the developed model tools and scenarios are relevant and have impact on the development of the future transport and energy system.
