Energy Technology

The Department of Energy Technology works broadly within the field of energy technology and covers thermal, mechanical, hydraulic as well as electrical energy technology. We partner with a wide range of Danish and international companies and knowledge institutions on both research and education. It is our ambition to always expand and increase our collaborative activities, and we emphasise knowledge transfer and the development of new technologies.

Potential areas of collaboration

Our research focuses on efficient energy production based on renewable energy sources and optimal use of energy for various purposes, hence also energy-saving technologies. Working with us will give companies and organisations access to the latest research and our many competences within research areas such as:

  • Fuel cell systems and hydrogen technology
  • Wind turbine systems
  • Solar power cells
  • Wave energy
  • Micro grids
  • Smart grids
  • Electrical transmission systems of the future
  • Biomass
  • Thermoelectric systems
  • Efficient and reliable power electronics
  • Power electronic systems and drive systems
  • Fluid power in wind and wave energy
  • Electric and hybrid vehicles
  • High voltage engineering
  • Controlling power systems
  • Design of sustainable integrated power systems, e.g. for houses
