Use 10 per cent more energy and save 10 per cent on your electricity bill. It can actually pay to use loads of energy when there is plenty available. Researchers can document this in a comprehensive study of how private consumers can achieve the greatest savings on their heating bill in a modern supply system with flexible electricity prices.

It pays to increase energy consumption

A new study shows that it is possible to save money and reduce carbon dioxide emission by using more energy.

New technology seems to be able to significantly improve the removal of microplastics from wastewater. At the same time, it can filter large amounts of organic material that can subsequently be used for biogas production. (Photo: Colourbox)

New technology can filter microplastics in wastewater

In the coming years, Aarhus University is taking part in a new project that will contribute to better removal of microplastics from wastewater.

Two engineering students have built a mini version of Google’s enormous data centre. This now provides the university’s students and researchers with unique opportunities to experiment with system design for cloud computing. Pictured here are Martin Jensen (left) and Kasper Nissen.

Researchers receive international award for new substance

Using enzyme technology, researchers at Aarhus University have succeeded in producing a group of new substances with properties including the transport of certain types of medicine in the body.

Sounds affect us. And they have a greater impact than previously thought. But what is good acoustic quality? In a new project, researchers will develop a model that makes it possible to predict how sound waves behave and affect people in urban spaces. (Photo: Colourbox)

Less noise in large cities

A good sound environment promotes well-being and health. Researchers will now study the way noise behaves in urban space, and come up with new standards for acoustic quality.

Walk through your building before it has been built

A special 3D cinema has opened at Aarhus University. It makes it possible to experience a building both inside and out while it is still on the drawing board.

The underwater robot DeepFreeze has provided polar researchers with very detailed knowledge about ice algae, which are the key to understanding life in the Antarctic waters. Pictured here are Tor Dam Eskildsen and Thomas Juul, who designed and built the robot for the researchers. (Photo: Tor Dam Eskildsen)
The robot enters the water through a hole in the ice. It is made of a material that can withstand considerable temperature fluctuations and protect the electronics in cold underwater conditions. It is steered from the surface by a standard X-box controller. (Photo: Tor Dam Eskildsen)
Good data quality depends on the robot being able to take measurements at exactly the same places under the ice over time. So what do you do when the ice is too thick for the GPS signals to penetrate? DeepFreeze is equipped with digital cameras that look through the cold, clear water towards two light sticks in the ice. The information is then sent to a computer that calculates the number of pixels between the two sticks and thereby the exact position of the robot. (Photo: Tor Dam Eskildsen)

Underwater robot provides new opportunities for polar research

Two engineering students have built an underwater robot that can analyse algae conditions under the Antarctic sea ice. This provides completely new opportunities for polar research, and the robot has just successfully completed its first scientific expedition to Greenland.

Team AU ready for the Shell Eco-marathon

The countdown has begun for this year’s world championship in ultra-energy-efficient vehicles. After two years of intensive development work, Aarhus University (AU) will now enter an ultra-efficient eco-car in the Shell Eco-marathon, which kicks off in London in June. The aim is to drive almost 9000 kilometres on the equivalent energy of one litre…

A single calculation can result in up to several thousand different combinations of wrong answers. Engineering students are behind a new app that can spot what a child has done wrong in less than a second. (Photo: Red Raccoon)
