Danish executives: “Shortage of wind-engineers may be an obstacle in the climate struggle”

Every August, Aarhus University, together with Vestas and Siemens Gamesa, gather 50 of the world's best engineering students for a two-week summer school. The aim of which is to attract talent to the Danish energy sector.

Open house: The protein livestock feed of the future will come from grass

The GO-GRASS and GRØNBIORAF research projects are examining how grass protein could become a sustainable alternative to imported soy. On 24 August, the projects will hold an open house event at Aarhus University in Foulum, and everyone interested is welcome.

New researcher wants to develop cancer medicine in Denmark. She has a unique idea

Lili Zhang wants to use her knowledge about mechanical engineering to develop new types of cancer medicine. The idea is new, the approach is innovative and highly interdisciplinary, and just thinking about the potential clinical impact is enough to make you dizzy.

Due to Corona, a second TECH tent will be opening at Bryggen in the middle of Copenhagen this year, where, in collaboration with the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), the University of Southern Denmark (SDU), Aalborg University (AAU), the Danish Society of Engineers (IDA) and Engineer the Future, AU Engineering will be debating technology.

Denmark’s Political Festival (Folkemødet) 2021: TECH tents to open in both Allinge and Copenhagen

What will be the role of universities in the green transition? Is 'Denmark as a test country' an opportunity or a constraint? And can we increase the supply of highly qualified labour by allowing older people to remain active on the labour market for longer? These are some of the questions on the agenda in the TECH tents at this year's Political…

When there is a surplus of electricity from wind or solar, the energy storage is charged. This is done by a system of compressors and turbines pumping heat energy from one or more storage tanks filled with cool stones to a corresponding number of storage tanks filled with hot stones. This makes the stones in the cold tanks very cold, while it gets very hot in the hot tanks, up to 600 degrees. Illustration: Claus Rye, Stiesdal Storage Technologies.

Denmark's largest battery - one step closer to storing green power in stones

The concept of storing renewable energy in stones has come one step closer to realisation with the construction of the GridScale demonstration plant. The plant will be the largest electricity storage facility in Denmark, with a capacity of 10 MWh. The project is being funded by the Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program (EUDP)…

"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…
