Motivated by the success of internet technologies, energy internet, also referred as web-based smart grid (SG) or SG 2.0, is expected to offer innovative applications based on advanced connectivity and intelligent management of distributed energy resources (DER), systems and services with a strong focus on enabling a paradigm shift in the energy industry. Being the European leader in the development of SG technologies, Denmark has developed its unique understanding of the energy internet. Based on the learning from a number of research and development activities in Denmark, this paper introduced two important subjects of the energy internet from the Danish perspective, i.e., service-oriented flexibility trading and integrated design, planning and operation of multiple cross-sectoral energy systems. Both elements are anticipated to bring in new business opportunities and challenges for different stakeholders in the energy industry; meanwhile these emerging solutions would both require and foster the transform of energy markets to facilitate the development of energy internet.
