Future Energy Center
The challenges due to the energy related emissions, increased energy demand and the fragile state of the global economy calls for rethinking global energy systems. Therefore, the research within the Future Energy Center focuses on renewable energy, energy efficiency and emission mitigation, as well as smarter modelling, optimization and management.
The Future Energy Center is one of Sweden's strongest environments in process optimization targeting the process industry and the energy sector. We develop innovative solutions and tools within the areas of energy, building and environmental engineering.
The Future Energy Center has good relationships with both companies and recognized national and international centers, including several Chinese universities. The profile comprises nine professors, a further fifteen senior researchers and more than forty graduate students.
Three focus areas
The research at Future Energy Center is focused around three areas:
- Track 1: Renewable energy
- Track 2: Energy efficiency and emissions mitigation
- Track 3: Smarter modelling/optimisation and management
Within Future Energy there is a research profile;, wich is supported by KK-stiftelsen (Stiftelsen för kunskaps- och kompetensutveckling).
The Future Energy Center also offers studies at post-graduate level in. We are also part of the research school Reesbe (Resource-Efficient Energy Sytems in the Built Environment).
