Subject area

Heating and Cooling

Our research and development is focused on facilities for producing electricity and heat, contributing in creating a flexible, environmentally conscious, and cost-effective energy system. Here we also engage in research concerning district heating, which is the most common form of heating Sweden, making use of resources that would otherwise be wasted.

When electricity is produced heat is created that in turn is used as district heating. This is called cogeneration and is an important part of production of renewable electricity since it is most often produced by biofuels or through energy recovery by incineration of waste. This research area also encompasses the development of fossil free processes utilising by-products from the pulp and paper industries to replace oil and coal.

The goal of our research is to increase the knowledge and strengthen competences in heat, cooling, and cogeneration to illustrate its role in climate mitigation towards a sustainable society – for example by providing proof of concept for business solutions and future technologies.
