Smart sensors to provide real time data for optimized operation of the district heating grid

Researchers from the universities in Aarhus and Aalborg are working closely with leading companies to develop intelligent, battery-less sensors that communicate wirelessly to an autonomous cloud-based monitoring system.

"I simply think we need more female role models and mentors who can inspire young women in their career choices already at very early stages," says Professor Selin Kara. Photo: AU Foto.

New professor sees plenty of opportunities for women to power the green transition

Selin Kara is a new professor at the Department of Biological and Chemical Engineering at Aarhus University, where her research aims at using natural processes as a substitute for one of the world's most polluting industries. She wants to see more women in engineering and other STEM programmes, but there is a lack of role models, she says.

Best Student Award

MSc in Civil Engineering Bartlomiej Kotula recently won the best student award for his master’s thesis on the development of a BIM-based tool to support sustainable building design.

"The project will develop a mature and sustainable system that is efficient, flexible, inexpensive and safe, and that can be used directly by e.g. CHP plants as a plug-and-play option," says Assistant Professor Pourya Forooghi. Photo: Colourbox.

Development of future plug-and-play CO2-neutral district heating solution

Researchers from the Department of Mechanical and Production Engineering at Aarhus University are participating in an EUDP-supported development project to design future heat pumps for small and medium-sized district heating plants.

"You can't use conservative estimates from old energy systems when you have to model an entirely different future. We have to realize that photovoltaic technology has undergone dramatic developments in recent years which make it a very important player in the future," says Assistant Professor Marta Victoria (picture).

New research: Photovoltaics can make the world fossil-free faster than expected

Limitations in models used by the IPCC in its calculations of possible pathways to climate-neutral energy production suggests that the potentials of solar photovoltaics as a powerhouse in the green transition have been drastically underestimated. This is the conclusion of new research from an international team of scientists and experts in…

"With this technology, we can address the huge societal problems that electronics already present, and which will only get more pressing in the future," says Assistant Professor Shweta Agarwala. Photo: Shweta Agarwala.

Deciphering the secrets of Printed Electronics

We live in a world where we want our electronics to be flexible, bendable and stretchable apart from being intelligent. Printed electronics technology has emerged as the main route to enable this vision. A team of researchers from Aarhus University has now published a comprehensive review of its development that will enable researchers to address…

Even minor changes in natural and climate conditions are quickly reflected in the insect population, and it is therefore vital to monitor developments.Researchers from Aarhus University have developed an intelligent counter to help automated nature monitoring. (Photo:Colourbox)

New magazine from AU Engineering: Together, we create the future

The green transition, sustainable technologies and interdisciplinary solutions to society's greatest challenges are the focal points of AU Engineering's new engineering profile magazine.

"If we have knowledge about how an individual product is operated, its condition, how it is disposed, etc., we can take much better decisions during the design and manufacturing planning phases to make sure that the value in each product, in terms of its materials and components, are recovered as efficiently as possible and life cycle environmental impacts due to the product are minimised," says Associate Professor Devarajan Ramanujan, Aarhus University.

Digital platform to make manufacturing industries more circular

Aarhus University has joined a new European project to design and develop a digital cloud-based platform to boost the circularity and sustainability of manufacturing industries. The system will make it possible for companies, stakeholders and consumers to gain more knowledge about the full life cycle of products, and will give them the ability to…
