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.

Danish engineers in huge EU project to show the farming of the future

Farming is facing a paradigm shift in which smart IT solutions will modernise the industry and make it more efficient. The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation is granting hundreds of millions to a large demonstration project to boost development.

New technology will monitor and limit ammonia emission from livestock production. This will solve a major environmental problem in farming. Pictured here are Anders Feilberg and Quyhn Nguyen in the laboratory. They are working on chemical methods for cleaning the air. (Photo: Lars Kruse)

New technology will reduce air pollution from farming

New sensors and technology for purifying the air will make it possible for farmers to control ammonia emission and remediate odour from livestock production.

Using time-resolved data from 28,000 Danish single-family houses, researchers can document that the current national energy requirements have a significant impact in terms of reducing heating consumption. (Photo: Colourbox)

Danes use less energy on heating

With data from 28,000 single-family houses, researchers have analysed the historical development of our actual energy consumption for heating private houses. They can thereby document a clear effect of energy-saving requirements in the current building regulations.

Smart lid on the way for coffee drinkers

A specially designed lid can solve the problem of burning your tongue when you drink hot coffee. A group of engineering students is behind the invention and they have just started production of the first prototype.

Aarhus University is opening its energy laboratory in Katrinebjerg on Friday 2 December. (Photo: Lars Kruse)
The laboratory can be used by researchers, students and companies. The aim is to gain experimental experience with an energy system based on full integration of sustainable energy sources such as the sun, wind and biogas. (Photo: Lars Kruse)
The RESCUE Lab is self-sufficient with energy from the sun, wind and biogas, and also has the capacity to store energy. This image is taken on the roof, which is equipped with solar cells. (Photo: Lars Kruse)

Danish researchers behind new cancer images

By combining two different scanning technologies, researchers have succeeded in creating completely new and detailed images of cancer tumours in mice. This could eventually pave the way for the development of more effective drugs.

In the coming years, researchers will develop new technology that can accommodate the world’s growing need for computers that are even smaller, faster and more energy-efficient. With a prestigious EU research grant, they will establish a completely new technological foundation for the electronics of the future.

On Friday 1 July, diplomas were awarded to a new batch of engineers from Aarhus University. The event was followed by speeches and sparkling wine.

The building laboratory at AU Engineering has in recent weeks been the epicentre of true copies of some of the most powerful earthquakes in history. All the vibrations come from a specially built simulator. Pictured here (from left) are Jakob Gam, Andreas Poulsen and Søren Truelsegaard – all engineering students at Aarhus University.

Students recreate earthquakes in the laboratory

A group of engineering students has built an earthquake simulator that can very precisely recreate historical earthquakes in the laboratory. They can now carry out full-scale safety tests on small buildings.

The Grundfos hall of residence at the Port of Aarhus is no ordinary building. It uses energy when there is plenty of solar and wind power, and it ‘hibernates’ when the power in the energy grid comes from fossil fuels. (Photo: Henrik Olsen)
A technical room has been set up in the basement of the building, with equipment that provides monitoring of the energy consumption in all the apartments at intervals of a few seconds. Pictured here are Associate Professor Steffen Petersen (right) and PhD student Michael Dahl Knudsen – both from the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University. (Photo: Henrik Olsen)

Intelligent buildings make our energy consumption greener

It is possible to shift our energy consumption to times of the day when there is plenty of power from renewable sources such as solar and wind. At least to a certain extent if we invest in technology for intelligent management of our buildings. This is the conclusion of researchers in connection with the completion of one of the world’s most…
