Future Energy Center

Renewable Energy

In Renewable Energy the researchers work with components, processes and systems for converting biomass, with focus on waste streams, to heat, electricity and vehicle fuel, and utilisation of solar and wind energy.
A core area is enhancing the flexibility, to accommodate intermittent renewable energies such as solar and wind, and to meet the growing need of capacity.

Detta projekt kommer att leda till förbättrad förvaltning av vattenkraftsektorn, ökad vattenkraftproduktion och förbättrad beredskap för extrema väderhändelser. Detta kommer ytterligare att bidra till Sveriges nollutsläppsmål och hjälpa samhället att utveckla bättre klimatreducerande och anpassningsstrategier.
