"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…

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…
