New business collaboration will provide more on-site research

Aarhus University is taking part in a new nationwide project that will strengthen small and medium-sized enterprises in the wind industry.

A strong electricity grid can distribute surplus wind and solar energy by 2050. In order to succeed, the grid must be three times stronger than it is in Europe at present. This will provide an opportunity to divide approximately 40 per cent of the surplus production. The rest can be used for local heating and transport. The interaction between local utilisation and the transmission of renewable energy is one of the project’s core themes.

Danes use less energy on heating

With data from 28,000 single-family houses, researchers have analysed the historical development of our actual energy consumption for heating private houses. They can thereby document a clear effect of energy-saving requirements in the current building regulations.
