EXECUTIVE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME on Smart and Sustainable Cities in Denmark

Event code: 79068

DTU-BCA EXECUTIVE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME 2016
SMART AND SUSTAINABLE CITIES

Copenhagen and Fyn, Denmark • 26 to 30 September 2016




PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Singapore has embarked on the journey towards becoming the world’s first Smart Nation, seeking to support better living and stronger communities, and create more opportunities. To co-create this future of Singapore, the built environment sector could play a crucial role in turning Singapore into a Smart City.

Similar to Singapore, Denmark has an ambitious goal for the country: to be the first carbon-neutral country in the world by 2050. Smart City projects have been carried out in many Danish towns and cities, and Denmark has been identified to have the opportunity to become a world leader in smart cities. In the European Smart Cities ranking, three Danish cities, namely Aarhus, Aalborg and Odense, are ranked within the top 10 smartest cities.

To leapfrog Singapore’s smart city development, the DTU-BCA Executive Development Programme 2016 on Smart and Sustainable Cities will allow the delegates to be immersed in the Danish cities and the smart solutions implemented in the living labs, so as to have a deeper understanding on the various aspects of a Smart City, such as smart energy, smart building and smart technology.

The 5-day programme comprises lectures conducted by the Academia from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), as well as visits to remarkable sites such as the UN City Complex, Energinet, Danish Industry and Carlsberg Byen in Copenhagen and Fyn.



LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Through the lectures, sharing by the experts and site visits, the participants will gain understanding on the key elements that define a Smart City and the innovative solutions available. Networking sessions will also be arranged for the delegates to meet up with local industry players and solution providers, to help the delegates identify and possibly bring back suitable integrated solutions to be implemented in Singapore.



KEY LECTURES

THE NORDIC WAY, SMART CITIES, LIVING LABS FOR INNOVATION
By Associate Professor Alfred Heller, DTU Civil Engineering
Smart Cities, in a Danish context, is primarily about including renewable energy supply into the systems. However, the whole sustainability agenda is in play and implemented e.g. in the Danish certification within sustainability, the DGNB Denmark for cities standard, one can find examples of implementations in all aspects of the city, water, waste, the biking culture and the synergy between people, organization and technology.

INTEGRATED DESIGN IN BUILDINGS IN RELATION TO SMART CITIES
By Associate Professor Lotte Bjerregaard, DTU Civil Engineering
Many of today’s societal challenges are expressed in a condensed form in the field of urban design. The challenges are numerous and involve climate change and CO2 reduction issues, which again are linked to health and social stability problems. This complex knot of interlinked aspects is at the heart of urban design. There is a demand to manage this complexity in a systematic design process in which very large amounts of information on all aspects is infused in the earliest design phases. The lecture will be centered around ‘surplus value through collaboration’:
1) How to create collaborative models that create quantifiable sustainable solutions, enhance social sustainability and financial soundness;
2) How can digital tools support architectural and technical excellence
based on scientific knowledge?

SUSTAINABILITY AND PLANNING
By Senior Researcher Per Sieverts Nielsen, DTU Management
Energy Planning in Denmark stem back to the oil crisis in 1970s where a significant increase in oil prices changed the way Denmark looked at the energy sector. Since then Denmark has maintained its investment in R&D in renewable energy and energy efficiency, despite the fall in oil prices in the 80s. The presentation will focus on the Danish experience in transforming the energy sector and achieving some remarkable results, led by very ambitious target to becoming CO2 neutral by 2050. Today, almost 50% of electricity consumption is covered by wind-power. Economic development
has been decoupled with energy consumption where a large part of heat consumption today come from district heating networks, with 98% of heat supply in Copenhagen supplied by district heating. Urbanisation drives very large infrastructure and neighbourhood developments, which all have to comply with targets for a sustainable development in the cities. The presentation will cover the Danish experience in developing sustainable cities and current trends.

SUSTAINABLE BUILDING MANAGEMENT AS A STRATEGIC TOOL FOR CITIES AND ORGANISATIONS
By Associate Professor Susanne Balslev Nielsen, DTU Management
Prof Nielsen’s research focus is on Managing Sustainability in the built environment. Her competencies are both on a strategic level to develop strategic business plans for organizations regarding Facilities Management (FM), to increase understanding of FM as a socio-technical artifact, and to facilitate co-generation of knowledge aiming at FM innovations, especially management innovations like new services, partnerships etc. Facilities are in her perspective at all scales, including: buildings, infrastructures and cities. Prof Nielsen will share her research on the benefits of adapting FM-processes to the specific context, specifically on the benefits from understanding the individual perspective in order to promote sustainability within the built environment.
