The energy transition group has a research agenda focused on the development of sustainable and systemic solutions to the energy transition. The foundations for the energy transition are generation of renewable and clean energy and its efficient and well managed used. We target both challenges, with focus on:

  1. Solar energy, from materials for energy to resource assessment and forecasting, distributed generation, system integration with electric vehicles and long term renewable energy scenarios;
  2. Energy in buildings, including theoretical  and experimental approaches to natural ventilation and building stock energy modelling, applied research and design projects as well as building energy audits;
  3. System energy and emission analysis including mass and energy flow balances of systems transportation and biorefinery systems
