New business collaboration will provide more on-site research

Aarhus University is taking part in a new nationwide project that will strengthen small and medium-sized enterprises in the wind industry.

A strong electricity grid can distribute surplus wind and solar energy by 2050. In order to succeed, the grid must be three times stronger than it is in Europe at present. This will provide an opportunity to divide approximately 40 per cent of the surplus production. The rest can be used for local heating and transport. The interaction between local utilisation and the transmission of renewable energy is one of the project’s core themes.

New project will make green energy 100 per cent affordable for the Danes

Seventeen of the largest and most significant players in the energy sector in Denmark and other parts of Europe will now join forces in a huge project aimed at converting the entire energy system so it is ready to run purely on renewable energy.

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is one of the Bachelor of Engineering degree programmes that has experienced the largest increase.
