Energy and Built Environment

Our multidisciplinary research encompasses various fields of science and technology, all of which unite for the common goal of arriving at solutions that will allow for a more sustainable future.

Our research aims to develop new knowledge about systems that will make it possible for electricity and heat from the sun to function and to be integrated into energy systems in our homes and buildings. How solar energy can be used varies according to the time of day and time of year and does not always follow in unison with consumption needs. Questions that are central to us are how to work with this reality and how to store solar energy and heat.

A further component of our research looks at construction technology methods and components for energy-smart buildings: Energy Efficiency in Built Environments. Research on energy efficiency also looks at how social and economic factors, political decisions and other societal factors can have an impact on energy consumption and use.

Our research is characterised by regional and international collaboration, as well as collaboration with local businesses and public-sector organisations.
