Accordingly, Aalborg University actively develops its position as one of the key players in energy – and environmental research and education in Denmark.
Today, 40% of the energy consumed in Europe is for heating. All this energy can become sustainable through modern district heating systems collecting waste heat from power plants and industry, and working at low temperatures which minimises the heat loss and integrates more sources of renewable energy.
The Efficient and Reliable Power Electronics group at The Department of Energy Technology (Aalborg University) is a world-class research center within the field of power electronics. The purpose of the group is to develop innovative power electronic converters and systems to all relevant applications, which are efficient, reliable and cost-competitive by means of reduction in […]
This Sino-Danish project deals with research, development and demonstration of a full-scale microgrid. The work will be carried out by two highly rated Universities, Aalborg University (Denmark) and Tsinghua University (China), in cooperation with Kamstrup, leader of smartmeters and smargrid ready components in Denmark and the company Shanghai Solar Energy Science & Technology Co. Ltd, […]
Heat Plan Denmark 2010 is an update of Heat Plan Denmark 2008 and confirmes how the sector has reduced the CO2 emission in Denmark since 1980 and how this development can continue in a cost effective way to an almost CO2 neutral heating sector in 2030. The study is based on an overall least cost evaluation of the […]
On a global scale, less than half of all wastewater is collected and less than one fifth is treated. This has led to severe environmental degradation of many inland and sea waters around the world. This white paper provides lessons learned from Danish stakeholders within wastewater treatment.
In recent years, the Danish Technological Institute (DTI) has been a principal partner in several R&D projects focusing on characterisation and removal of microplastics and microrubber in wastewater treatment plant influent/effluent, industrial wastewater and stormwater, respectively.
