Benchmarking the energy situation of Danish municipalities - Rural production and urban efficiency

Publikation: KonferencebidragPosterForskningfagfællebedømt

Energy is a key issue for sustainable urban development, mainly related to the twin challenges of climate change and resource scarcity (Droege 2011). Despite agendas set on national and international level, local authorities are the key actors in this transformation (Lewis et al. 2013). European initiatives as the Covenant of Mayors or Energy Cities are closely following this development and supporting local authorities in their actions. Still, a general benchmarking of states and efforts is still missing which could however increase the use of good practice and enforce discussions in lagging cities.
Against this background, a model was developed in the ongoing European FP7 project PLEEC ( to measure the energy situation in cities, called “Energy-Smart City”, compiling over 50 energy-related indicators. In this paper we adapt the model to the Danish context and benchmark the 98 municipalities in the country.
