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…

The purpose of the award is to recognise younger researcher and engineer (less than 40 years old) who has delivered significant and promising scientific results at an early stage of their career and has great potential to promote scientific knowledge. Photo: AU Foto.

Early Career Award for research into machine learning

Associate Professor Alexandros Iosifidis from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is to receive the prestigious EURASIP Early Career Award 2021 for his research into machine learning and artificial intelligence.

It is hoped that this project will provide tools to deal with digitalisation constructively in the future, because from a societal perspective there is no question about where developments are heading," says Thomas Bjerre, CEO of Innvite ApS. Photo: Maria Randima, AU Foto.

The agricultural sector isn’t particularly digital. Why is that?

There are both economic and environmental reasons for adopting modern information and communication technologies in livestock farming. But far too few European farms take advantage of this technology. A new EU-funded development project will find out why, and will simultaneously demonstrate these technologies to a number of farmers.

Det er meget dyrt at udvikle nye klimateknologier, og selv om teknologien virker i laboratoriet, så kan det kræve en stor indsats at få det tilpasset praktisk landbrug. Udviklingsomkostningerne må i stort omfang betales af de landmænd, som skal implementere teknologierne. Der er i derfor et stort behov for at billiggøre indsatsen. Foto: Colourbox.

Collaboration on the development of Danish climate technologies

Denmark is a leading nation of knowledge when it comes to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture. A workshop followed by an international conference will highlight the Danish competencies and create new opportunities for companies to develop climate technologies for agriculture (in Danish only).
