Use 10 per cent more energy and save 10 per cent on your electricity bill. It can actually pay to use loads of energy when there is plenty available. Researchers can document this in a comprehensive study of how private consumers can achieve the greatest savings on their heating bill in a modern supply system with flexible electricity prices.

It pays to increase energy consumption

A new study shows that it is possible to save money and reduce carbon dioxide emission by using more energy.

New technology seems to be able to significantly improve the removal of microplastics from wastewater. At the same time, it can filter large amounts of organic material that can subsequently be used for biogas production. (Photo: Colourbox)

New technology can filter microplastics in wastewater

In the coming years, Aarhus University is taking part in a new project that will contribute to better removal of microplastics from wastewater.

Two engineering students have built a mini version of Google’s enormous data centre. This now provides the university’s students and researchers with unique opportunities to experiment with system design for cloud computing. Pictured here are Martin Jensen (left) and Kasper Nissen.

New cloud is a ‘playground’ for students

Aarhus University now has its own data centre where students and researchers can experiment with technologies for cloud computing. Two engineering students are responsible for both the design and the construction.
