"In some years, we will have to install more than a 100 Gigawatts of solar PV and wind power, and to achieve full decarbonisation the CO2 prices will have to be a lot higher than today," says Assistant Professor Marta Victoria, an expert in photovoltaics and energy systems at Aarhus University.

Green energy transition: Early and steady wins the race

Researchers from Aarhus University have modelled the decarbonisation of the sector-coupled European energy system using very high-resolution data. The results are clear: To reach climate-neutrality by 2050 we need solar energy. And lots of it.

Danish researchers develop budget optical ammonia sensor

In collaboration with the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University has developed photonic sensor technology that can pave the way for a portable, reliable and, above all, inexpensive device for detecting ammonia and other gases in agriculture.

You need to know something about textile fibres and particle chemistry if you want to design an effective face mask. And it has to be sewn so that it perfectly fits your face. These are the conclusions from last week's face-mask speed experiment at Aarhus University (Photo: Colourbox)

Students test face masks in the laboratory

There are large differences in how well cloth face masks filter particles, and it is crucial that they fit snuggly against your face. These are the main conclusions of an experiment at Aarhus University.

"Denmark is at the forefront of research in district heating. With our projects, we will demonstrate that Denmark could be one of the first countries to exploit the existing housing stock economically as heat storage in district heating systems," says PhD Student Virginia Amato (left).

Buildings as thermal batteries in a transition towards a green energy system

Denmark is to be climate-neutral by 2050. This requires major changes in our utilities sector, and buildings will play a significant role in this context. Three PhD students at Aarhus University talk about their research to help Denmark meet targets in its climate plans.

Aarhus University links brain research and artificial intelligence in new centre

A new cross-disciplinary centre will develop brain-machine interface technologies. One of the goals is to develop the next generation of technology to monitor, diagnose, and treat brain diseases while at the same time developing brand new brain-inspired AI hardware.

How do you recycle composite from wind turbines?

When composite from wind turbines is to be disposed of then it either ends up in landfills, or it is incinerated. However, researchers are working on a sustainable way of recycling the composite material, says Mogens Hinge, expert in plastics from Aarhus University, in this blog post.

How neural networks can help us gain a deeper understanding of financial markets

A new research project at Aarhus University will use Bayesian Neural Networks to model, analyse and understand trading behaviour in the world of finance. The researchers behind the project expect the technology to revolutionise our understanding of financial data.

"We can see a relatively large gap between newly developed technologies and strategies and the actual use of these sustainable technologies in the agricultural sector all over Europe," says Professor Claus Grøn Sørensen, Aarhus University. Photo: Colourbox.

New EU-funded project to make agriculture fossil free

There are lots of green, modern agricultural technologies, but they are used far too little. With funding of DKK 15 million, a number of European innovation hubs will now find out how technologies can be promoted and adapted to the users.
