DTU Management Engineering has many years of experience conducting research on energy system analyses and analyzing various policy and socioeconomic scenarios with respect to energy and climate change. Senior Scientist Kenneth Karlsson (project leader) has extensive experience within modeling of local, regional and global scale energy systems including all sectors and will supervise the PhD (PhD 2) in WP2 called Development of advanced transport module to TIMES-DK. Senior scientist Marie Münster has 13 years of experience working with renewable energy, biofuels, optimization models and energy system analysis. She has experience with project management and PhD supervision and will be leading WP3 and supervising a PhD (PhD 3) in Pathways to a 100% RE based energy system in Denmark. Researcher Jay Gregg has experience with energy-economic global integrated assessment models and decision making frameworks and will Co-Lead the project. Professor Per Dannemand Andersen has 20 years of experience with energy STI policy development and, furthermore, he has extensive international experiences with participatory methods such as scenario development, road-mapping, and energy policy development. He will supervise Post Doc 2 on Stakeholder involvement and participatory processes. Professor David Pisinger will supervise a Post Doc (Post Doc 2) in Linking LTM and TIMES and will in general support the project with his expertise in complex optimization problems. DTU MAN will participate in all WP’s with the main workload in WP2 and 3.

CONCITO is Denmark’s largest green network with nearly 100 companies, researchers, organizations, and individuals as members of the Council, all possessing extensive knowledge of climate change and leading in their field. The purpose of CONCITO is to provide analyses on low-cost transition towards a climate-neutrality in Denmark and abroad. CONCITO will be involved in WP3 and 4.

Danish Board of Technology Foundation is a corporate foundation with the common purpose of initiating and conducting research and assessments of important societal challenges, including opportunities and challenges stemming from developments in science and technology. The DBT has specialized in collaborative, inclusive and participatory research and assessment processes, involving experts, stakeholder, citizens and policy-makers directly in the work. DBT has led numerous projects in the field of energy policy analysis, including scenario projects, policy advisory activities and open dialogue projects. Director Lars Klüver will be co-supervisor for Post Doc 2. DBT will be involved in WP0 and WP3 and responsible for the structure of the workshops.

Danish Energy Agency; IntERACT group, a project group under the Danish Energy Agency, combines economic and technical modeling. The IntERACT project consists of a general equilibrium model (CGE) connected to a model of the Danish energy system (TIMES-DK). The CGE model describes the macroeconomic relations within the Danish economy, i.e. monetary and physical streams between industry, households, the public sector and international trade. The TIMES-DK model describes in detail the production and use of energy in the Danish energy system. Transport group, which is working with strategies and technology analysis for the transport sector with focus on energy consumption and GHG emissions from transport. The Danish Energy Agency will be involved in WP2 and WP3.

Danish Energy Association is a commercial organization for Danish energy companies, aiming to promote development, growth, and welfare in the Danish energy society. Danish Energy has competences within energy system modeling, future transport solutions, and energy policy development. Peter Meibom, adjoint professor in modeling of electricity markets at DTU, has experience in energy system analyses within Danish and international research projects, and will co-supervise PhD 2. The Danish Energy Association will participate in WP2 and WP3.

DTU Transport, Data- and Modelcenter supports scientists and practitioners in the transport sector with regard to: Data collection (from external as well as from our own sources), large scale data analysis, dissemination of results on many levels, development and use of transport models, documentation of models and data collections etc. DMC runs its own projects, mainly in the field of public sector consultancy, and is often associated partner in scientific projects, where access to high quality transport data is important. DMC consists of 9 data specialists with experience from e.g. public transport or transport consultants. DMC will supervise and provide support for the use of the LTM in the project.

E4SMA provides consulting services in the areas of system analyses, energy planning, policy and environment. The main area of expertise is developing E3 models to represent complex energy systems and to investigate how they evolve through scenario-based analyses. Senior Consultants Maurizio Gargiulo and Rocco De Miglio have an extensive experience in energy system modeling and scenario analysis at regional and multi-regional level. Consultant Alessandro Chiodi has experience in TIMES modeling analysis and he has been involved in scenario analysis in Ireland. Maurizio will co-supervise a Post Doc in Linking LTM and TIMES (Post Doc 1) and lead WP2. E4SMA will participate in WP1, 2 and 3.

Roskilde University, ENSPAC (Dept. of Environmental, Social and Spatial Change) at Roskilde University is a trans-disciplinary unit across science, technology and social sciences. Within the field of transport and mobility, projects, publications and activities has had a significant impact internationally as well as on the national transport discourses and transport policies. Associate Professor Per Homann Jespersen has comprehensive experience within Danish and international passenger and freight transport planning, including urban and regional development and modal shifts. He is also expert member of the Congestion Committee. Per Homann Jespersen will lead WP1 and will supervise a PhD in Demographic changes and physical planning: influence on transport demand (PhD 1). RUC will participate in WP1 and WP3.
