  • Renewable energy with focus on biomass and bioenergy

    This area of research within the Future Energy Center conducts development and improvements of processes and components for renewable energy with focus on biomass and bioenergy.

  • Energy efficiency and emissions mitigation

    This area of research within the The Future Energy Center focuses on how new technologies and services can be integrated into the energy system in order to increase efficiency and reduce emissions.

  • Simulation and optimization for future industrial applications

    This area of research within the The Future Energy Center conducts advanced modelling approaches and measurement techniques for power plants and the process industry. 

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:

  1. Renewable energy with focus on biomass and bioenergy
  2. Energy efficiency and emissions mitigation
  3. Simulation and Optimization for Future Industrial Applications (SOFIA)

Research profile

Within Future Energy there is a research profile; Future Energy Center , wich is supported by KK-stiftelsen (Stiftelsen för kunskaps- och kompetensutveckling).

Post-graduate studies

The Future Energy Center also offers studies at post-graduate level in Energy and Environmental engineering . We are also part of the research school Reesbe (Resource-Efficient Energy Sytems in the Built Environment).
