Industry and urban energy planning

One of the main challenges of the green transition is to transform industries, cities and municipalities with low carbon economies. A contributing factor is that energy has been traditionally produced centrally and then distributed to the energy consumers through electricity grids and distribution systems, which implies higher costs and less efficiency. A green future, on the other hand, asks for a decentralised approach to energy that utilises the available resources as cost-efficiently as possible. This includes a reduction of costs and the optimisation in the exploitation of renewable sources, including a reduction in energy losses, both during production and supply.

Ramboll has worked in industries, cities and municipalities worldwide, assisting consumers, local authorities, energy suppliers and producers in aligning their energy strategies with operational, political, legislative and environmental goals and building a sustainable future.
