"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

2021.04.06 | AU Engineering

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

2021.03.30 | AU Engineering

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…

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)

Intelligent insect counter opens new opportunities for nature monitoring

2021.03.18 | AU Engineering

Engineers and biologists from Aarhus University have developed an intelligent light trap that can count insects and determine their species as they fly past. This could significantly boost nature monitoring.
